Once again, it’s left to our Lake Worth Herald to succinctly explain “the boot”.

To check out The Lake Worth Herald and the Coastal & Greenacres Observer use this link.
For those of you still having difficulty understanding this new City program:

“The ordinance provides for the Sheriff's Office, Lake Worth Code Enforcement Officers and Parking Enforcement Officers to enforce vehicle immobilizations for outstanding unpaid parking citations and for towing vehicles off City property that meet criteria.
     There are vehicles in Lake Worth that have more than three unpaid parking violations and this ordinance gives the authority to ‘boot’ a vehicle if it is improperly parked and an enforcement officer is writing a fourth or greater ticket. Enforcement officers, when entering information on a vehicle will be flagged if there are three outstanding tickets on the vehicle and will be authorized to immobilize it with a ‘boot’.”

And from my “random notes” taken from the City Commission meeting on June 6th on the booting of vehicles:

“We don’t want your money. We want your compliance.”
—Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell.
