“This meeting will be moderated by Police Commander Lee Ashlock and attended by City Manager Max Royle and Police Chief Robert Hardwick,” Communications & Events Coordinator Cindy Walker told local reporters.  “The meeting is open to the public and the public is invited and encouraged to present constructive solutions, and alternatives.”

Discussion points will include, but are not limited to:

  • parking zones
  • methods of payment
  • hours of enforcement
  • the possibility of using a mobile app
  • parking violation fines
  • protecting the neighborhoods from overflow parking
  • hourly cost of parking for St Augustine Beach residents
  • discounts for St Augustine and St Johns County residents
  • discounts for employees working in the City of St Augustine Beach
  • other solutions to the budget issue, and more

If you plan to attend the 5:30 p.m. meeting, the conference room is located on the north side of the building and has its own parking and entrance at 605 A1A Beach Boulevard in St Augustine Beach.  Seating is limited and there will be no outside seating available.

A computer and projector will be available; however, PowerPoint presentations must be on a flash drive.
