Listen to Amoroso and McVoy speak to the bond
If you have been listening to WJNO this week, they have mentioned this bond many times.
According to them, commissioner Andy Amoroso was the one to spearhead and push for a new bond referendum and placing it on the November ballot (actually it was city manager Bornstein who suggested November) for road repairs. Commissioner Christopher McVoy was the lone dissenter because of the lack of transparency.
It was this present commission of Maxwell, Triolo and Amoroso that cut the road maintenance repair budget from over $1 million to a budget of $500,000. Of that $500,000 ONLY $200,000 went to road repairs. Right now, Andy and the city has no idea where the $40 million will be spent and even mentions money being spent on sidewalks. Amoroso said the district he represents is fairly affluent. I thought our commissioners represented all of the residents in Lake Worth.
Commissioner McVoy recognizes that we have a serious road problem and that we need to do something. When we're committed to an approach to completely rebuilding the road, it's an enormous opportunity to get public input. The bond is vague with no discussion on it. What are you getting for your money? The cost to a property owner is unknown and the finances and all details need to be transparent.
