Electric Generation Power Summary

In year 2002, we entered into a contract with FMPA that locked us into higher power costs. Commissioner Maxwell voted FOR that contract.

The beginning of lowering rates started in December 2008 when we voted to exit FMPA All Requirements. By the end of 2013, we ended our contract with them. In January 2014 we got a new energy provider with Orlando Utilities giving us a rate that was more favorable to Lake Worth. Tonight, discussion will take place on purchase power contracts.

According to the agenda tonight, FMPA has been contracted again, this time regarding our solar--Solar Power Sales Contract with FMPA; deliveries begin June 2020

Quote of the Day - Ben Crystal on Democrats and Socialism

"Socialism is political cancer. It literally ruins every place in which it's tried; routinely with attendant casualties in the millions.

But its message of "free stuff, and the rich guys pay for it" sells to millennials, their burnt-out hippie parents, and their college philosophy professors; none of whom realize that once they've gotten rid of the rich guys, there's no one left to pay for anything.

Nonetheless, the Democrats are bringing it back. It's the perfect complement to their "pussy" hats and Che' t-shirts — and losing."

Southern Poverty Law Center is a HATE Group

VIDEO: Ties found between FBI and flaming liberal hate group Southern Poverty Law Center, which listed Ben Carson on its “extremist watch list”

For example, SPLC does not list Antifa as an extremist group. Really? Yet, they do consider Ben Carson a flaming extremist. And, as unbelievable as it may sound, SPLC does not list Black Lives Matter, responsible for inciting mass murder, as an extremist group, which they justify thusly on their own website.

Liberals know more about hate than any other group. Sometimes I think it is just a game with them...take down all Republicans and conservatives to regain the power.  Why would any group advocate illegals crossing our borders under any circumstance with some of them committing horrendous crimes? They can't be that insane, can they?

Electric Utility City Commission Meeting

The City of Lake Worth wants to create a separate commission  meeting for the Electric Utility. A special meeting will be held tomorrow, July 31 at 6pm, for this purpose to approve.

Electric Utility meetings of the City Commission shall be held on the last Tuesday of each month, in the Commission Chambers, at City Hall, 7 North Dixie Highway, Lake Worth, Florida beginning at 6:00 P.M.

From the Resolution 46-2018:

Electric Utility meetings of the City Commission shall be held on the last Tuesday of each month, in the Commission Chambers, at City Hall, 7 North Dixie Highway, Lake Worth, Florida beginning at 6:00 P.M.

If an Electric Utility meeting date falls on a holiday or conflicts with the need for a Regular or special meeting of the City Commission, the Electric Utility meeting may be re-scheduled to another date ideally during the last week of the month or the Electric Utility meeting may be cancelled.

Electric Utility matters may be heard at Regular and special meetings of the City Commission. Except as set forth herein, the Electric Utility meetings shall follow the same format, procedure and have the same rules of procedure as a Regular meeting of the City Commission.

A very important discussion on the agenda is under New business 5F--our 138kv tie line at Hypoluxo. Just this year we had two system failures one causing a fire. According to city manager, Mike Bornstein, he suggested that the failure was because of aging equipment or really bad luck.

There is no doubt that we need a 2nd tie-line.  It's a matter of where it should be and at what cost. Last year, Mr. Bornstein said that he would have a plan and identify a funding source by the end of the 2017 year.

Townhall Traffic Meeting

Commissioner Omari Hardy and PB County Commissioner, Dave Kerner


Kudos to Commissioner Omari Hardy!

Last night, commissioner Omari Hardy had a Community Traffic Meeting at the Lake Worth Casino. It was well attended and the discussion was on the traffic conditions when attempting to get onto 10th Avenue North from North A Street as well as entering and exiting I-95 from 10th Avenue N. Other streets with traffic problems were mentioned--North D Street, Dixie Highway and 22 Avenue North.

There were many concerns regarding A Street while entering 10th Avenue North at the intersection. People enter 10th Avenue and do not stay in their lane closest to them but cross over thus tying up the flow of traffic and causing congestion and back-ups. Suggestions for a left turn arrow was mentioned.

This I-95 Interchange is a long process. Lake Worth could widen the road to 3 lanes on North A street by 10th Avenue North but designs could change in the future.  County Engineers spoke as well as a rep from FDOT.

Supreme Court Gives Warnings to District Judges on Trump Resistance Rulings

The Supreme Court delivered a not so veiled threat against judges who use activism in place of the law in their decisions. They also criticized the judges for making their rulings national and not case specific, a breach of trust on their part.

Those judges would be eligible for removal for corruption. Although the warning is about several different issues, the court was especially harsh on judges who ruled against Trump’s travel bans, as he was doing this under the auspices of a law passed by Congress. They pointed out they could not take statements made by Trump or any of his officials on the subject. [Steadfast and Loyal]

Remembering who is Boss

When we have a complaint in Lake Worth, we always hear from folks that we are a representative democracy and as such, if we have certain gripes about how our elected officials decide on issues, we have the right to vote them out...that is all we can do. Voting someone out is not as easy at it sounds. Basically, they are telling us to stop complaining and go with the flow--a reason why so many voters get disenchanted believing that they can't fight city hall.

That was Mac McKinnon's political philosophy years ago. He couldn't stand anyone disagreeing with him. He was wrong then and anyone believing it, is wrong today. But we see it happen all of the time. It's the favorite thing for politicians to tell you when they don't like something you have said.

Once elected, politicians often allow their personal interests and biases to interfere. Cara Jennings was one of the few who seldom allowed that to happen.  At times. there are so many outside influences for politicians that directly affects how they vote.

A primary one in Lake Worth is about who helps finance the campaigns--corporations and industry groups, developers, labor unions, single-issue organizations, and certain individuals looking for favors. You need money to run for office and now that campaign contributions have doubled, more influence is being generated. If someone gives you $500 or $1,000, you are less likely to screw them in a vote.

This chart shows you who is the boss--it is the Resident of Lake Worth.  It is copied from the Audit for 2017, page ix. Commissioners need to remember this. Just because we voted for you does not mean you don't have to listen.

Illegal Immigrants Are A Greater Threat To Elections Than Any Meddling

  • Allow staff to do their jobs--codes that are on the books.

  • To change the demographics, have a housing project
  • If we have a really small sword, we should sling it even more violently
  • Employees haven't had raises in years
  • We need a literacy coordinator
Scott Maxwell:
  • How do we change the demographics?  Let's be honest on our demographics.
  • We can start with the 800 lb gorilla in the room
  • How are we going to transport thousands of people who don't belong here?
  • Change the demographics. Lake Worth has become a depository for the poor and indigent.

Herman Robinson:

Participants were asked the question: "Would you like to see the Senate vote in favor of Brett Kavanaugh serving on the Supreme Court, or not?" The poll was conducted from July 10-15, 2018, and results were based on telephone interviews with a random sample of 1,296 adults aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The margin of error was plus or minus three percentage points.

Hogg Claims Russia Supplied $30M To NRA In 2016 For Trump

CNN and the Democrats have another brain dead puppet, a willing kid who has been manipulated beyond belief and who knows nada. As this kid appears everywhere, even on the hate network CNN, spreading his lack of facts. I'm not sure who is less informed or less of an embarrassment, he or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"Young Mr. Hogg claims that Russia supplied all the money the NRA spent on Trump in 2016.

But that suggests he doesn’t know that Hillary spent 1.2 billion dollars, while President Trump spent 600 million. So if money buys elections, why isn’t Hillary in the Oval Office? Then he said that Trump will cancel the 2020 elections. If he had been in government class instead of spewing hatred on CNN, he would have learned the Executive branch has zero say in elections. Congress has the power over elections and the Supreme Court has oversight of them." [SteadfastandLoyal]

Lake Worth to get new Recycling bins on October 1

PRESS RELEASE
FOR RELEASE UPON RECEIPT

CITY OF LAKE WORTH, PARKING DIVISION

WHAT:           CITY OF LAKE WORTH CHANGES TO TWO BIN RECYCLING
WHEN:           OCTOBER 1, 2018
WHO:              ALL RESIDENTS AND VISITORS ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:      

Lake Worth, Florida – Starting Oct. 1, residents and businesses in the City of Lake Worth will have two recycling bins instead of one, as the City restarts its partnership with the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County (SWA).

The new partnership will have a big impact on making recycling in the City of Lake Worth more sustainable. Lake Worth’s single stream recycling partner had raised the cost of recycling by $90 per ton and regular assessments of single stream recycling showed that over a third of loads were contaminated and unable to be cleanly recycled. By re-partnering with the SWA, the City of Lake Worth will see economic savings as well as benefit from the SWA’s Recycling Revenue Share Program.

Recycling efforts through the SWA go back into the local community as a Revenue Share. Since 2010, local municipalities have shared almost $9.3 million in recycling revenue. Lake Worth will now be a part of this program, and benefit from the sale of recyclables.

The SWA has operated a two-bin recycling system since the late 1980s, keeping paper separated from dirty food and drink containers. This ensures that the paper that is recovered is very clean and has a higher value, while wasting as little as possible.

The City of Lake Worth remains committed to environmentally conscious living. An effective recycling program is an important part of that commitment along with our progressive projects such as our Municipal Solar Energy Field, Low Impact LED lighting, and our continued work with the Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center on capturing the energy of the Gulf Stream current. We look forward to partnering with the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County to provide a more efficient and lower cost recycling program to all residents.

Located in central Palm Beach County, Lake Worth is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with an individualistic style.  People are drawn to the city by its acceptance of different cultures and lifestyles, historic districts, hip downtown and colorful arts district.

WHO:              ALL RESIDENTS AND VISITORS
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:      

Lake Worth, Florida – Effective August 1, 2018 the City of Lake Worth hourly rate for parking in all beach lots will increase from $2.00 to $3.00 per hour.

To provide a more user friendly and simplified parking experience, the City of Lake Worth has also implemented a pay-by-plate parking management system in all beach and boat ramp lots. This system allows customers to pay for parking spaces by using their plate numbers at meters rather than having to note their space number. Customers may also add time and pay for parking on their phones by using the Parkmobile app which provides the convenience of not having to return to feed the meter.

The City of Lake Worth continues to explore new ways to better serve residents and visitors to ensure the Lake Worth Beach and the Lake Worth Casino Complex remain some of Palm Beach County’s best public beach locations.

Located in central Palm Beach County, Lake Worth is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with an individualistic style.  People are drawn to the city by its acceptance of different cultures and lifestyles, historic districts, hip downtown and colorful arts district.

Lake Worth, Florida, USA – Friday, July 18, 2018 – School gardens are gaining popularity across the country. This is no different at the William B. Finneran Montessori Academy of Sacred Heart School in Lake Worth, Florida where most of the students take ownership of their From Seed to Table Organic Garden Program. In conjunction with the garden, the school introduced its FREE organic breakfast and lunch program last year.

In 2017, a group of parents and alumni designed and now manage the whimsical storybook themed garden. The garden gives a nod to books such as Dr. Seuss, Jack in the Beanstalk, The Ugly Duckling, and more. The school uses the garden in conjunction with their S.T.R.E.A.M. curriculum. “The garden offers an opportunity for the children to experience what they learned in class. That is why the children call it their outdoor science lab”, detailed Principal Tamposi. The children consume what they grow or take it home in the hope of introducing their parents to healthy eating.

“I believe that eating healthy is a learned behavior, and. Sacred Heart School introduced our organic garden in conjunction with our free or reduced organic breakfast and lunch program and it has been a total success”, stated Principal Candace Tamposi.

Principal Tamposi admits that the process of getting FREE organic breakfast and lunch programs in place was involved but well worth it.

Changing their palate to healthy eating needed to start with what we offered at school. Therefore, Principal Tamposi took the snack machines out and banned processed foods. The children were skeptical at first but halfway through the first year, the children started to use terms like natural sugar foods and low-fat foods.

The children are growing Strawberries, papayas, banana, blue berries, breadfruit, avocado, sweet potato, cabbage, several kinds of tomatoes, lettuce, several kinds of beans, cilantro, basil, rosemary, mint, red & yellow bell peppers, lemongrass, garlic chives radishes, and chickpeas.

“You cannot expect a child to learn on an empty stomach.” Principal Tampo

Tattoo Parlors in Lake Worth

Lake Worth says no more tattoo shops, ponders downtown’s future

Mayor, you can't really believe what you said? I'm with you commissioner Maxwell. NO more tattoo parlors especially in the downtown. This never should have been allowed. People are really disgusted about what is happening in the downtown and many are staying away or moving out. And if you don't believe me, talk to some of the merchants.

Housing Projects coming to Lake Worth

"There are currently five other housing projects underway or near completion in Lake Worth other than Lake Cove community, a 59 single-family home subdivision being built on a 12-acre site on 19th Avenue North, just north of Vernon Heights..
  • The One, a 14-unit, four-story condo on South Palmway and Lake Avenue that is 60 percent sold and due to be completed in August.
  • Banyan Court Apartments, a 3-story complex on North A Street that will include 85 1- and 2-bedroom units.
  • Adopt-A-Family is building a 14-unit housing development at North A Street and 3rd Avenue North by 2020.
  • The MID, a 230-unit project at 1601 N. Dixie Highway received an economic development incentive from the city in May, with staff still awaiting for submission of the major site plan.
  • Golden Roads, a 189-unit apartment complex on the north side of 10th Avenue, just west of Boutwell Road."
Can you even imagine all the traffic on A Street and 10th Avenue North once some of these developments are built?  Holy Moly.  And who pays for all this infrastructure? As far as the crime addressed in this article, commissioners just ignore those sections of Lake Worth and you never see PBSO until AFTER the fact.
