Lake Worth CRA wins $23.2 million federal grant

Article in today's PB Post - click title for link.  This is old news by now, I guess they are just getting around to it. This is the grant that Commissioners Golden and Jennings thought the CRA should apply for as we would have to adhere to their rules.  Then, Commissioner Golden, in her re-election campaign, used it routinely in her campaign literature as an accomplishment.  There is and will be a fight over this money between the City Commission and the CRA - let's hope it doesn't get in the way of what the grant is designed to improve:  Slum and Blight conditions in the city.
