Amateur Radio Week Declared
Amateur Radio Week Declared
The Flagler County Commission declared the week of June 18 through the 24th to be Amateur Radio Week in Flagler County at its June 4 meeting.

Flagler County Amateur Radio operators have generously and repeatedly donated effort, time and equipment to provide communications support to local government and the community in emergency situations and during normal day to day operations. Amateur Radio has proved its relevance in the modern world by providing emergency communications when other systems failed in the devastation of earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and elsewhere throughout the world.

Flagler County Amateur Radio operators continue to hone their communication skills by operating the 24 hour simulated emergency known as “American Radio Relay League Field Day” on June 23 and 24. The County Commission calls on all County residents to recognize the service of these dedicated individuals.

Florida Blood Centers, the Van Duzer Foundation and the Flagler County Commission are challenging other Florida counties to organize blood drives during the “Be A Hero Bike Tour” which will be stopping at Wadsworth Elementary School on June 18 as they travel along the east coast of the U.S. A reliable blood supply is essential in the community for use in lifesaving medical treatments. Statistics show that one pint of blood can help save the lives of three individuals.

The Flagler County Commission declared June 18 to be “Be A Hero Day” in Flagler County and urge citizens to participate and donate blood for the benefit of those in need.

Janet Nickels Flagler County’s Human Services Program Manager and Pastor Charles Silano of Grace Tabernacle Ministries were recognized by the Flagler County Commission for their work with Access Flagler First and for being this year’s recipients of the June Heister Award from the Volusia Flagler Coalition for the Homeless.

The Coalition Board voted to recognize Access Flagler First as the organization that has the greatest impact on the prevention and intervention in homeless this year in Flagler and Volusia counties.

Access Flagler First is a monthly event that brings agencies serving residents together with the families and individuals that may qualify for their services. It also offers a wide range of services including food and clothing.

The program outgrew the auditorium at the Extension Service on Sawgrass Road and has moved to the Cattleman’s Hall at the Flagler County Recreation Area at 650 County Road 13. Access Flagler First is the first Friday of every month from 1 to 4p.m. It is free and open to the public.

The June Heister Award is an annual award established in honor of June Heister who bequeathed her estate to recognize organizations that help to end homelessness in Volusia and Flagler counties.

For the third year in a row Flagler County’s Financial Services Office has garnered the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association. The award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting.

Flagler County Administrator Craig Coffey recognized the entire department and praised them for their continued excellence in the budget document at the June 5 Flagler County Commission meeting. Coffey praised the finance team for their efforts to create a clearly worded budget document that is easy to follow and understand.

“The award represents a significant achievement,” a release from the national association stated. “It reflects the commitment of the County Commission and staff to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting.”

To achieve the award from the national association the Financial Services Department had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The award is for the County’s current fiscal year of 2011 to 2012.

The National Association of Counties recognized the Flagler County Commission for an Achievement Award for its part in the renovation and reopening of the George Washington Carver Community Center in Bunnell.

The award from the National Association was in the Children and Youth category and was presented in recognition of an effective and innovative program which contributes to and enhances county government in the United States. To qualify for the award, the program had to offer a new service to county residents, promote intergovernmental cooperation, go beyond mere compliance with the law, and have proven results.

The award was presented to the County Commission at its regular June 4 meeting by County Administrator Craig Coffey. Members of the County Commission credited Commission Chair Barbara Revels with the lion’s share of the honor. Revels led a committee of local government, civic and church groups to resurrect the former high school gym into a community center that not only serves the youth but the adults as well in an economically depressed area of the City of Bunnell.
