Lake Worth officials to discuss federal grant use

Last chance to get your thoughts heard on allocation of CDBG monies for FY 2012-13.  Previous meetings have been sparsely attended.  The meeting is tonight at the Golf Course Clubhouse from 6 to 8 p.m.  The City Commission will have a special meeting on Thursday (4/12 @ 6 p.m., Commission Chambers) when they will consider the recommendations.  Click title for link to PBP article.

This was an interesting meeting. Lots was discussed and it appeared that it was about the past rather than focused on the the topic we came to discuss. In the end the consensus of those who have a vested interest in this specific area to be granted, put aside personal preferences and voted unanimously for the one doable (time constraints) project and still STAFF will be recommending infrastructure. They don't appear to comprehend that this was so specific, into one area only with x amt. of $$ and 18 month for completion. This is not an open ended do as you want shill game. Where $$$ are hidden, diverted or misused. This grant has accountability written all over it.
