Doughnuts with Doughney

Flagler Beach Police Chief and 7-ELEVEN host “Doughnuts with Doughney”

The Flagler Beach Police Department and our local 7-ELEVEN store have partnered to host “Doughnuts with Doughney” on Friday, March 2nd, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Flagler Beach 7-ELEVEN convenience store is located at 408 South Oceanshore Boulevard.

“Doughnuts with Doughney” is similar to “Coffee with a Cop” in that it provides the public an opportunity to meet and speak openly with Chief Doughney about issues and/or concerns in Flagler Beach. The location of the meeting provides citizens easy access to both the 7-ELEVEN and Chief Doughney, in a relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere.

“We’ve got two (2) major events, Bike Week and Spring Break, that will occur during the same week in March and we’d like to hear about any concerns that our citizens may have in advance of these events.” Doughney said.

According to the Police Chief, the upcoming “Doughnut” event will coincide with the “First Friday” event in March and the times were changed (from morning to evening) to accommodate those that couldn’t make previous morning events”.

Doughney concluded by stating “Our local 7-11 owner, Mr. Eric Cooley, helped create the “Doughnut” event concept and working with him is a pleasure. The “Doughnut” events are free, fun and interactive for all and I continue to look forward to them each and every time”.

Should you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Chief Doughney at (386) 517-2024.

Please remember the following:

  • Please utilize the above Beach Access/Dune Crossovers onlyDo not walk on or across the Sea Dunes to prevent further erosion of the Dune system.  City Ordinance 6-9 prohibits the destruction, harm, molestation, cutting, harvesting, removal or eradication or cause of destruction of any plant life on the Dune areas within the City, east of Highway A1A.
  • Please do not attempt to utilize closed Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations.  Closed locations have clearly visible yellow Caution tape and wooden boards blocking access.  These locations have been deemed unstable and have hereby been closed for public safety.
  • Please utilize caution when accessing the Beach at the above locations, as there may be a varied distance between the last step of the Beach Access Points and the sand.

The City will be working to re-open as many Dunes Access Points, both North and South of SR100, before March 1, 2018.  Our City crews continue to make progress on repairs and the goal is to open as many Beach Access Points in preparation for this year’s upcoming “Beach Season”.

All repairs will be temporary and with future funds awarded from FEMA the replacement of new Beach Access Points damaged during Hurricanes Matthew & Irma will be built to meet new building codes.

As a City we’re committed to repairing and/or replacing all of the damaged Beach Access/Dune Crossovers and City Staff will continue to work diligently in order to get this task accomplished.  When additional Beach Access/Dune Crossovers are re-opened, a Public Service Announcement/Media Release will be issued.
