The St. Augustine City Commission is moving forward with plans to form a new advisory committee tasked with amending the city’s land development code to reduce flooding.
Commissioner John Valdes brought up the idea in the Sept. 28 meeting, formally sponsored the effort, and in Monday night’s City Commission meeting he volunteered to lead the committee.
“That’s how much I want to be part of moving this thing along. This is important. We have an opportunity to fix something here that’s relatively simple,” he said.
