"Hmmm, is there a way to watch Lake Worth City Commission meetings Live Streaming?" Yes!

To watch the City Commission meeting tonight (August 2nd) Live Streaming is very easy. Use this link a few minutes after 6:00 and click on "Video/Audio of Public Meetings". If the meeting doesn't appear wait a few minutes and try again. Below are excerpts from the agenda with highlights:

City of Lake Worth
City Commission Meeting, City Hall Chambers
Tuesday, August 2nd at 6:00
1. Roll Call
2. Invocation or Moment of Silence
3. Pledge of Allegiance
4. Agenda: Additions/Deletions/Reordering
5. Presentations (there is no public comment on Presentation items)
A. Neighborhood Association Presidents Council update

[and if you've been following this kerfuffle. . .]

9. Consent Agenda (public comment allowed during Public Participation of Non-Agendaed items)
F. Ratify the appointment and reappointment of board members to the Recreation Advisory and Sister City board

It's a fairly short agenda. If you attend this Commission meeting, or if you watch online, pay close attention to commissioners Ryan Maier and Chris McVoy. Watch the tactics they use to delay items and/or monkeywrench the proceedings:
The antics by Maier and McVoy are eerily similar to a 1944 CIA handbook. "Talk at great length", "haggle over precise wordings", and one of their favorites: "raise the question".
