City of Greenacres merged with PBSO two years ago. Wouldn’t your community or city like an update?


A reporter from The Palm Beach Post was there to cover it all in 2015 and keep the public informed. But it’s now two years since the merge and little if any news in the Post since about this very important issue here in Central Palm Beach County. Isn’t it about time for a feature story in the local ‘B’ section? Maybe even the Sunday paper with a leader over the banner on the front page?

Wouldn’t you like to learn more about
what is happening?

And early in 2016 the Post even had a reporter covering the topic of code enforcement in Greenacres too:

     “District I Councilwoman Lisa Rivera [now former Councilwoman Rivera] led the wide-ranging meeting, which covered everything from trash inside newspaper vending machines to unsightly medians along Lake Worth Road to pitch black streets on Haverhill Road. [emphasis added]
     Several city department heads and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies were on hand to answer questions from Rivera on why her district looks the way it looks.”

and. . .

     “Rivera is also concerned that many of the businesses in her district, which runs from the L-10 Canal south to the L-15 Canal, and from Military Trail west to South 57th Avenue, look like they should be in a flea market, with their garish colors and tacky banner signs.
     ‘It looks horrid,’ Rivera said.”

Stay tuned. When the Post finally gets around to providing updates about PBSO and code enforcement in the City of Greenacres will let everyone know.
Wouldn’t you like to learn more about how the merge with PBSO is working out? Maybe you think your city should be having that debate too? Merge the police department with PBSO if it makes
sense for your municipality.
