And it is also worth noting a rumor two years ago that the Town of Lake Clarke Shores was planning a naval invasion of the City of Lake Worth is completely unfounded.

The rumor was the citizenry of Lake Clarke Shores was forming a flotilla of pirates and marauders to navigate the C-51 Canal in the dark of night, bypassing the S-155 Spillway structure in Lake Worth’s College Park neighborhood and then taking by force the boat docks and properties along the canal.

An invasion of Lake Worth by Lake Clarke Shores never did happen and never could happen. Palm Beach County forbids one municipality from invading another municipality. And besides, why would Lake Clarke Shores want the headaches.
