News & Announcements


Volusia County named Deputy County Manager George Recktenwald as the Interim County Manager while the County Council decides how best to move forward. In his first update to Council, Recktenwald stated, "I am working on a better communication strategy to keep all of you informed and the community at large as well."

For months, the idea of a half-cent sales tax increase in Volusia County to fund infrastructure has been discussed. This morning during normal Volusia County Council session, Item 2 addressed Ordinance 2018-11, seeking voter approval of a half cent sales tax to be placed upon the November ballot. After public comment by both the Elected Official Roundtable Chair Mayor Bob Apgar and The Volusia Manager's Association Chair Joe Yarbrough stating consensus by both groups to postpone the question being placed upon the ballot, the County Council agreed to take no action at this time.

On behalf of the Volusia County Council, District 1 member Pat Patterson sent a letter to Central Florida Commuter Rail Commission (CFCRC) Chair asking for the SunRail Commission to add to their March 29 meeting agenda a discussion and vote on previously proposed amendments to the three commission organizational agreements due to the lack of federal funding to construct Phase 2 of SunRail to DeLand.
