From the "That was then, this is now" file...

Click here for a presentation made to the Commission on December 8, 2009.  It was done at the time that the current agreement with the County on the $5 million was renegotiated.  Here are some of the promises made then that are conveniently being forgotten about now:

We are now paying for a reduced and value-engineered "Singer Plan" and are paying for the utility improvements ourselves.  Interestingly, the utility work was bid out and part of the proposed Morganti GMP.  Was an analysis ever done to determine if the city's own labor forces could do any of this work?  And it is important to remember that this was billed as a 100% Palm Beach County funded project.  The truth emerged only after the departure of our former City Manager that the city was on the line for project costs over and above the original assumptions.
