The 3rd Sea Level Rise Summit: May 3rd–5th in Ft. Lauderdale (and how many feet above sea level is Lake Worth City Hall?)

The last sea level rise summit in Key West, if you didn't know, was attended by our Lake Worth Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell and commissioners Ryan Maier and Chris McVoy. The presentation given at the City Commission meeting about that summit by Maier and McVoy didn't go very well. You can read all about that using this link.

Hopefully the next presentation given to the citizenry will be much better next time if any elected's from Lake Worth attend. Below is what the vice mayor took away from the summit in Key West:
If you want to attend the next summit in Ft. Lauderdale below is more information:

"On Day 1 we examine the science and impacts with experts from NASA JPL, NOAA, FWS and USF. Days 2 and 3 convene decision-makers and industry professionals to discuss public policy and private adaptation efforts."

Here is the link to see the full agenda and they're also promoting the summit on Twitter too:
There's no need to pack up and move if you live in Lake Worth any time soon. City Hall is about 16′ above sea level. Hopefully all of our elected's can concentrate on other things like the City's street lighting and fixing the roads to name just two.
