Flags at half-staff in city

Flags at St. Augustine’s City Hall have been lowered to half-staff in honor of Faith K. Tiberio who died on Monday, July 17.  Tiberio and her husband, Joseph, were recipients of the city’s de Avilés Award in 2006. Mr. Tiberio died in 2013.

Mr. and Mrs. Tiberio were the 28th recipient and the first couple to receive the de Aviles Award, presented on May 23, 2006. First presented in 1988, the de Avilés Award is presented to “Those identified in the field of public service or those well-known and respected by the citizenry who have dedicated and honorable service to the community of St. Augustine and St. Johns County.”

Flags are lowered at city hall for one day upon the death of recipients of the de Avilés Award, the Order of la Florida and past members of the city commiss


The City of St. Augustine is conducting two separate sidewalk projects starting on Monday, July 24. Both projects include the installation of sidewalks where currently there are none.

One project is along the west side of Riberia St. between Valencia St. and Carrera St. and the other in an area along St. George St. south of Bridge St. adjacent to St. Francis Park.

Weather permitting, the projects are expected to be completed mid to late August, and are being funded by the city’s mobility initiative.
