Today is the anniversary of the failed LW2020 bond four years ago.

Due to concerns about sea level rise and street flooding a former commissioner here in this City of Lake Worth successfully rallied enough votes to defeat the City’s LW2020 road bond on August 26th, 2014. That bond vote failed by just twenty-five votes.

The subsequent Neighborhood Road Bond in November 2016 passed by a “whopping 69%”. The very same critics back in 2014 used the same argument again about sea level rise as the reason to vote no on the second bond vote. But that argument didn’t hold any water in 2016.

Now that today is the four-year anniversary of the failed LW2020 bond, think for a moment how far ahead our City would be right now had that bond passed? Ironically, one of the most vocal opponents of the LW2020 bond later wrote a letter to the editor (see below).
