Leaders from West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach, Lake Worth and... |

Glad to read this meeting finally happened and hope that it is the first of many more. Redevelopment and promotion of Dixie Hwy. would be a great project for Lake Worth and West Palm Beach to work together. Click title for link to Lona O'Connor's article. Here's the bit about the Lake Worth delegation.
Lake Worth Mayor Pam Triolo and City Manager Mike Bornstein explained their newly rewritten nuisance ordinances, which deal with squatters, another problem the four municipalities share.
Although the list of shared issues was long, Lake Worth’s Bornstein identified five major categories: jobs, public safety, code enforcement, infrastructure and planning. He affirmed the idea of regional approaches to all five.
“The lesson we’ve learned is that there is no magic blue line at the city limits,” said Bornstein.
As to Bornstein's last point - true enough, but not when it comes to our electric utility.
