The Graffiti Hotline is no longer working. I called 3 times - as a citizen and not as a board member - to report 4 instances of tagging in Mango Groves. Yesterday I was fed up, so I rode my bike to all of the spots with a camera and took pictures. I then emailed the pictures to Captain Silva. By 10am this morning I had a message from PBSO about the graffiti. Below is the email:
The four locations mentioned will be cleaned up today, 4/18/11. Should you find any additional graffiti, please call the Sheriff's Office and a deputy will respond to photograph the graffiti and forward the report to our Graffiti Unit. Please do not hesitate to call me should you have any questions and thank you for contacting us regarding this issue.
Lieutenant Beth Krivda
District 14 - City of Lake Worth
I strongly encourage you to contact the non-emergency number for any instances of graffiti that you find in Lake Worth. Or you can call Lt. Krivda whose number is above."
Let's keep Lake Worth beautiful!!!

Mango Groves 2011 Officers and Board and Representative Jeff Clemens.
This blog is meant to inform citizens of Mango Groves about their neighborhood meetings, events, and other pertinent information involving the City of Lake Worth. Positive comments are appreciated.
"Good Neighbors Make Great Neighborhoods."
The first Mango Groves meeting for the year was very lively, and informative. Joe Kroll the Public Services Director for the City presented on neighborhood cleanups, and going forward the process should be a lot easier for us. The PBSO also presented on several of their recent successful prostitution and drug bust operations and community policing. New officers were sworn in by Representative Jeff Clemens who talked about some of his ideas for the State and the City and made it very clear that he intends to be accessible to his constituents. For more please see Minutes & Agendas.
