Lake Worth, FL* — Community Sustainability Open House this Friday

On March 10 [Friday] from 8:00 am–4:00 pm the City of Lake Worth Community Sustainability Department will be hosting an Open House at 1900 Second Avenue North.
     This will provide an opportunity for the public to see the results of a nine month overhaul of the Community Sustainability space as part of the ongoing customer service initiative. The department’s aesthetic and organizational changes were designed to foster improved staff efficiency, productivity, effectiveness and morale as well as provide an improvement to the customer experience for all visitors.

“To be able to best serve the community we have undertaken a significant upgrade to a larger and more accessible space as well as an in-depth customer service initiative. Our goal throughout has been the improvement of the customer service experience. With the number of building permits, plan reviews, business license inspections and code compliance cases up dramatically over the past few years it was important to better organize the space so that customers could be seen quickly and efficiently.
—William Waters, City of Lake Worth Director for Community Sustainability.
