Upcoming public meetings at Lake Worth City Hall and much more information “Worth Noting”.

Have you heard about Mayor Pam Triolo’s State of the City Address coming up? Commission Work Sessions and candidate forums and this year’s Vegetation Amnesty Week?

In brief, information all about that and much more is cited in this blog post today.

So let’s begin.

Only three more regularly scheduled City Commission meetings are coming up prior to Election Day. Learn more about that a little later.

The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) meeting rescheduled earlier this month will be held this evening (Jan. 22nd, 6:00). Meeting will be held in the chambers at City Hall.

Of special note: On February 7th is a City Commission Work Session on the topics of education and future projects using proceeds from the ¢1 sales tax increase in Nov. 2016.

Please! Don’t show up and try to monkeywrench this process with bringing up that nonsense about another lap swimming pool at the Beach. There are too many more important things to do.

For example, public safety and public health. . .

Coming up soon, on January 30th, is a public meeting to discuss the upcoming Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for Fiscal Year 2019–2020. Yes, our City does need a pool or pools. But not at the Beach for the convenience of those in the wealthy Town of Palm Beach.

And more information “Worth Noting”:

Mayor Pam Triolo’s State of the City Address is tentatively slated for February 26th, 6:00, in the ballroom at the Lake Worth Beach and Casino Complex as per the City’s official calendar.

But that could change. So please await an official press release from Mr. Ben Kerr, the City’s public information officer.

The upcoming candidate forum this week at the Lake Worth Playhouse is for “Entertainment Only” which is why it’s held at the Playhouse. Stay tuned for individual neighborhood candidate forums being scheduled by the Neighborhood Assoc. Presidents’ Council (NAPC) ahead of the March 12th municipal elections.

These neighborhood events are much less entertaining but much more informative if City politics is of interest to you.

Please continue reading.

There are only three more scheduled regular meetings of the City Commission prior to the elections on March 12th, all begin at 6:00. Those dates are February 5th and the 19th and on March 5th.

So if anyone is planning to ‘stir things up’ so to speak with talk about PEACE, a plastic straw ban or a ban on balloons you don’t have much time left. But what you can do is bring a canteen to City Hall to show you are down with the cause with banning plastic water bottles. But not a metal canteen. Bring a plastic one. And please, water only.

There was no meeting of the Recreation Advisory Board (RAB) in January. But there will be one on February 20th at 6:30. Please mark your calendar. RAB meets at the offices of the Recreation Dept. at 501 Lake Ave.

Very Important: The 2019 schedule for trash, recycling, and bulk pickup. This year’s Vegetation Amnesty Week is May 27th–31st ahead of Hurricane Season on June 1st. Pickup “Zones” are the same as City districts. The are four zones, 1–4. To find out which zone your property is located use this link for the helpful GIS map.
