Lake Worth
EXCLUSIVE LAKE WORTH MEDIA STORY –

“We did it…” was the announcement of the official results concerning the petition drive on the beach issue. Over 7,350 signatures were certified by the county on three petitions putting the city ordinances concerning the beach redevelopment… in question and probably on the ballot this November. Over the next few days, Lake Worth Media will have continuing video coverage on this important accomplishment as there has been talk of the city holding up the process. Here is the status report to all those who signed the petitions.
