Flagler County's economic turn-around is still in a very fragile position. We are too depended on the residential housing industry for employment and property taxes. Although home sales have been steady they have been our only source of economic revenue, outside of retail. With every home sold approximately $6,000 in spent in the local economy as reported by the National Association of REALTORS.

Home sales are a good problem to have, however our local unemployment in May 2012 was 11.7%, still the highest in the state.  Getting the unemployed back to work in an industry other than the housing industry should be the goal of every elected official in the county.

To get them to work in an industry outside the housing industry will accomplish several goals but two that that will show immediate results.

1.Getting people back to work

2.Expanding our tax base

Our current property tax base relies heavily on our residential sector.   Over 80% of our tax base is depended on residential property and only 1.3% is industrial. This imbalance needs to be correct.

As a county we need to look at relieving impact fees or tax breaks on industrial companies that would bring manufacturing jobs into our area. Waiting for the company to come to our county and then letting them know about our incentives isn't good enough. We need to be advertising the fact we are open for business and these incentives are available.

The city council for Palm Beach Gardens is adverting they are open for business by letting everyone know they are considering incentives. To read more go to the article below. To read more click on the link News Article.

As a 12 year resident of Flagler County and a small business owner I have seen a lot of changes here, some good, some questionable. While we have multiple identities working to improve our community and bring in those jobs, our county needs to pull together, act as one body to bring those companies that will diversify our job market. To secure our county's economic future and to relive the pressure of property taxes off the residential sector. To make Flagler County a place where I can afford to retire and continue to take pride in our community.
