“The State of Florida has once again turned its back on Lake Worth.”

UPDATE: Don’t get excited and don’t get your hopes up. Word is the $2M for our Park of Commerce (POC) is back in the State budget. The POC is one of the few bright spots on the horizon vis-à-vis a future tax base going forward. Maybe this year’s legislative update, scheduled for the City Commission on May 16th, will have good news from State Senator Jeff Clemens.

Following is a blog post from earlier this morning about the Commission meeting last night:

Sobering comments by Lake Worth City Manager Michael Bornstein in the video below.

No matter what the City does, crossing all the t’s and dotting all the i’s, Gov. Rick Scott and the State legislature have no intention of helping little cities like Lake Worth. Despite all the problems — and all the progress our City has made over the last five years — none of that means anything to them.

Our City’s Park of “Commerce”, a project and word that should get the attention of every elected in Tallahassee, is just ignored.

Keep this in mind at tonight’s Planning & Zoning Board meeting (see the blog post following). According to Mayor Pam Triolo we’re going to “have to get creative” addressing the problems in our little 7-square-mile City of Lake Worth.
