A regional meeting was held this week in the City of Lake Worth.

City of Lake Worth Vice Mayor Andy Amoroso attended the General Membership meeting of the PBC League of Cities held in the Ballroom at the Lake Worth Casino and Beach Complex.

But meetings like this don’t generate enough clicks or social media ‘kicks’ to get much or any attention in the press or news media.

Especially so when there is a kangaroo on the loose.

How much do you know about the PBC League of Cities (LOC)? More information about the League is at the end of this blog post.

Vice Mayor Amoroso is a board member.

This week the only press to show up at the Lake Worth City Commission meeting was editor Mark Easton from The Lake Worth Herald. For the latest edition of the Herald which came out yesterday click on this link.

Last Tuesday evening, of course, the big news in the press and news media was about that kangaroo on the loose. Here is a Tweet sent from the chambers at the Lake Worth City Commission:

Without further ado, about the Palm Beach County League of Cities:

The purpose of the Palm Beach County League of Cities, Inc., is to promote and advance the collective interest of the municipalities of Palm Beach County, Florida; to analyize municipal issues and seek positive results through cooperative efforts; to respect the principles of Home Rule; and to encourage and enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Palm Beach County.

The League consists of all 39 municipalities in Palm Beach County, as well as over 100 Associate members. The Board of Directors, installed each May, is made up of 18 city officials: four executive officers, one representative from each of the League's five districts, six representatives from the largest municipalities, two at-large seats, and the Immediate Past President, if in office. Past Presidents still in office serve ex-officio.

The Board appoints the Executive Director, who is responsible for the daily business operation of the League. The Executive Director serves as chief liaison to the County Commission, School Board, department staff, and the Legislative and Congressional Delegation.
