Former Mayor George Gardner
The St Augustine Report
St Augustine, FL
The holidays during November and December have reduced City Commission meetings to just two over the next two months, but commissioners will fill some time in workshops.
The commission normally meets the second and fourth Mondays each month. Veterans Day in the second week and the Thanksgiving holiday period extending into the fourth week have cancelled regular November meetings, but commissioners decided on November 14 as a replacement.
In December the Christmas through New Year’s period takes out the second meeting, but there will be an organizational meeting December 3 to seat the winner of a run-off election for the seat currently held by Commissioner Errol Jones, as well as to re-seat Mayor Joe Boles and Vice-Mayor Leanna Freeman, who each ran unopposed.
December 10 will be the only regular commission meeting for the month, but there will also be two workshops – a 4 pm session before the December 10 meeting to discuss the future of the mini golf site on the bayfront, and a 9 am session December 13 to begin discussions on the city zoning code, starting with the use of Planned Unit Developments (PUD).
Commission meetings are held in The Alcazar Room in City Hall – regular meetings at 5 pm.
