Q: Do you have any updates on ways that St. Johns County is trying to provide relief to residents struggling with finances as a result of the pandemic?
A: At the Sept. 8 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, we voted to hold property taxes to the rollback rate for St. Johns County property owners, which will help provide relief for homeowners and their families. We are essentially keeping revenues to the county the same and allowing residents to keep some of their money. County staff told me that this is the first time we’ve rolled back the rate in at least 10 years.

Q: Do you have plans at this point to resume your Ponte Vedra office hours?
A: Unfortunately, we have put these office hours on hold due to COVID and they will probably continue on hold through the end of the year. I look forward to resuming these important meetings with constituents as soon as we can do so safely.

Q: Do you have anything else to share with District 4?

A: I’d like to once again draw attention to Pledge St. Johns County. This program offers businesses the opportunity to commit to CDC guidelines and ensure St. Johns County residents, visitors, and employees are safe and comfortable in their establishments. Pledge St. Johns County features a pledge in which businesses vow to adhere to guidelines regarding cleaning and disinfecting protocols, group size limitations, social distancing recommendations, and encouraging the use of face coverings by staff and customers. The county still has PPE supplies and printable materials available for St. Johns County businesses that take the pledge, which will be helpful not only for helping to prevent COVID, but also with what many believe will be an active flu season. Businesses can visit www.pledgesjc.com to learn more and to take the pledge and consumers can also visit this website to identify businesses that have taken the pledge.
