Business owner at our Beach, thoughts on Casino complex and pool. Observations nearly 3 years ago remain relevant today.

The video (see below) is from May 2015, now one
of the most-viewed all-time on my Lake Worth YouTube channel.

Mr. Lipton is the owner of Benny’s on the Beach. Now here we are 2 years and 8 months later. The Casino complex at our Beach along with the municipal pool — now closed for safety and structural reasons — are big items to address. A former commissioner last year, if you recall, chimed in with his ideas going forward:

“[D]o some things you can do with
coats of paint and whatnot.”

Prior to even thinking about a new pool is whether or not a pool at the Beach is a good idea. An idea to consider is a municipal pool located centrally in the City and more accessible for the public.

Lovely view.
One problem likely never to be solved . . . view from Mama Mia’s On The Beach. Parking and/or a loading dock for large commercial vehicles was never part of the planning back in 2009.

In the video below you’ll hear Mr. Lipton say things you agree with and maybe some things you don’t.

Interestingly, at the 20 second mark in the video many of you will recall who that person is that walks past Mr. Lipton while he is making a comment at the City Commission podium. That is a former commissioner, Cara Jennings, one of those from a previous City administration that made all those terrible decisions in the first place, e.g., the Greenwashing due to an out-of-control budget.

Hopefully our City will rally around people with ideas and solutions — not all of them accepted or agreed upon — instead of following past ‘visionaries’.

Enjoy the video:

Below are excerpts from this blog, May 2015:

“It was good to see and hear Mr. Lipton and what he said appearing at his first City Commission meeting. This gentleman has owned Benny’s for the last two years and increased its employment from 21 to 76 employees. He’s made changes and been successful doing so: he has high standards.
     That concept of ‘potential’ strikes again. Tough to argue with what he says. Most definitely worth a listen.”

FYI: If you plan on going to Benny’s would highly recommend the Tuna Tostada. Excellent!

It also would be a good idea to make reservations to avoid a long wait: call 561-582-9001.
Sushi-grade quality tuna along with a
view of the BEACH!
