The “tolling agreement” at our City’s Casino at the Beach: Early 2013–June 6th, 2017.


A tolling agreement is an agreement to waive a right to claim that litigation should be dismissed due to the expiration of a statute of limitations.

From September 17th, 2015 on this blog:

“Rain is not very kind to our Casino building. You would think a structure constructed next to the Atlantic Ocean in a sub-tropical climate would be built to standards to withstand a storm. But it’s not. Fortunately, the structure was spared last year [2014] being tested by hurricane-strength winds but did go through some heavy rain events [in 2015] and it failed the test miserably.”

Rain causes leaks at Lake Worth Casino building”.
Remember this news report on NBC5/WPTV in September 2015?
Hurricane Season began on June 1st.

More dates:
February 15th, 2016: Item 12A on Commission agenda, “Declare REG Architects, Inc., The Morganti Group, Inc., and The Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania in default.”

March 2nd, 2016: “City Commission meeting regarding the default declaration for the Casino construction problems.”

October 31st, 2016: “Discussion with REG Architects, Inc., and The Morganti Group, Inc., on their proposed fixes at the Casino Building.”

January 24th, 2017:Item 9G. Extension of Tolling Agreement with REG Architects, Inc., and The Morganti Group, Inc.”

June 6th, 2017, at the City Commission during public comment. A concerned citizen did research and compiled a list of dates when the tolling agreement was a subject of discussion at the Commission, vis-à-vis the construction problems and continuing issues with the City’s Casino at the Beach:
  • Early 2013
  • November 2013
  • August 2014

Are we going to end up tearing down another structure at the Beach?
