City Manager Search in Full Swing
The search for the next Port Orange City Manager is underway! The Mercer Group, Inc., an executive search firm specializing in City Manager hires, has been retained by the City Council to assist in the recruitment and selection process.

A very special "Thank You" goes out to the Citizen Advisory Committee, appointed by the City Council, that assisted the Mercer Group in the development of the candidate profile/promotional brochure.

Recruitment efforts are ongoing until 5:00 p.m. May 29, 2015, at which time the application period will close. As candidate information is provided to the City Council, that same information will be made available here for public review.

Please check back often for additional information and updates as the City Manager selection process continues.

Mock City Council Budget Game!
Ever wondered what it's like to be the Big Cheese? Now's your chance! The city of Port Orange is hosting its first ever budget games.

During this interactive session, teams will be "elected" to City Council and will have a chance to "vote" on where they want their tax dollars to go.

Participants will gain a better understanding of city services while at the same time providing input on services that are important to them.

The session begins at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10, 2015, at the Lakeside Center, 1999 City Center Circle.

Light refreshments will be served. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. To ensure your spot, please call the City Manager's Office at 386-506-5501.

Coming Soon, Riverwalk Park Phase 1A
A.G. Pifer Construction was awarded the contract for construction of Phase 1A of Riverwalk Park.

Construction is anticipated to begin in June and be completed by the end of the year.

Phase 1A, is located at the north end of the park, just north of the existing Chamber of Commerce.

I-95 Design Build Project Updates
Construction has officially begun along Interstate 95 (I-95) in Volusia County.

The current construction runs along I-95 southbound from Interstate 4(I-4) to State Road (SR) 421 (Dunlawton Avenue).

The existing outside travel lane is being resurfaced and the existing outside shoulder is being widened in preparation for barrier wall and the future traffic shift.

This process will be repeated going north bound once the south bound portion is complete. At right are pictures of the ongoing construction progress.
