Flagler County welcomes residents to the pages of Coast to Country digital magazine

Flagler County on Friday released the second quarter issue of its new “Coast to Country” magazine which provides information on all local government entities. The simplicity for viewers is that the www.flaglercounty.gov/coasttocountry link will still take them to the current digital flipbook, with the archives located below.

“It’s important that all of our elected officials have a voice in one forum to reach our visitors and residents,” said County Administrator Heidi Petito. “One of the magazine’s goals is for residents to better understand how all government entities in Flagler County are intertwined to represent our citizens to deliver services.”

For example, Flagler Schools, UF|IFAS Flagler County Extension, and the Flagler County Fair and Youth Show organization work in coordination with each other to support agricultural education and youth agribusiness. The Supervisor of Elections offers Flagler County students the opportunity to gain experience working on a real-world graphic design project with its “Voter’s Guidebook Cover Design Contest.”

Towards the other end of the spectrum, Senior Services and Fire Rescue – through dogged determination – worked together to provide an 89-year-old West Side resident with a new manufactured home available through a 2018 Rebuild Florida grant because his house was devastated by Hurricane Irma.

Other features include an update on beach projects, an overview of preventative measures recommended by the Florida Health Department-Flagler as part of National Water Safety Month, and news provided by municipalities and Flagler Constitutional Officers.
