Although the fourth Tuesday of the month is not a normal meeting date for the Fernandina Beach City Commission (FBCC), tomorrow will be an exception for two meetings.
The FBCC will convene in Special Session at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 to consider a resolution calling on State and Federal officials to support legislation to reduce gun violence in the country. The multipage resolution calls for:
- Requiring a background check for every firearm sale;
- Raising the age for legal purchase of firearms, magazines and ammunition to 21; and
- Supporting the passage of legislation that would keep military-style weapons and high capacity magazines away from schools.
At 6:00 p.m. tomorrow and following the Special Meeting, the FBCC will conduct a workshop on city sanitation services. City staff seeks guidance from the FBCC on key elements of the upcoming contract for sanitation services.
