On addicts in Lake Worth the resident writes, ". . . some relapse. Others hang them- selves. . .

Recall Comm. Ryan Maier's BIG IDEA to bring more investment into the City?
“Lake Worth is walkable, bike-able, has a ton of amenities for its residents and visitors, as well as an active social calendar,” said resident Tammy Pansa. “You can move here knowing absolutely nobody and end up not being able to walk downtown on Lake Avenue without saying ‘hi’ to at least half a dozen people. It is a city that celebrates culture and diversity.”—Quote from Palm Beach Post, Sunday, March 20th, 2016.

Should City change its name to "Lake Worth Beach"?
Click image above. The Palm Beach County news media, both print and especially the TV news, has consistently confused our City with western communities. For a long time those false news reports have damaged our image. Unfairly. Is it time to take charge of our own City brand? Differ our City from all those areas that just share a "Lake Worth" zip code with our 6-square-mile City?
Is it possible for Lake Worth to get its own City police department back? The way it used to be?
