|Our two year anniversary of failed "LW2020" bond was yesterday. North 'J' Street on way to Publix is now in even worse shape. The reason given back then to vote against the bond by a still-sitting commissioner (with a PhD) was his 'concern' over sea level rise. The bond failed by just 25 votes.|
In case you're wondering. . . there was no disruption or outrageous behavior like there was at the previous City meeting on this issue. The meeting was well run and orderly except for an attempt by one commissioner to give another lecture; there was a point of order by Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell and the meeting continued.
Below are some excerpts and commentary related to the PowerPoint presentation that was given at the Lake Worth City Commission Workshop last night (Thursday, 8/25). Click here for link to full PDF file of the report.
