Last night MGNA met for our February meeting. The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office made a presentation on their crime reduction techniques in our neighborhood and in the city of Lake Worth. Commissioner Scott Maxwell took time out from his dinner engagement to drop in and give us some more information on the controversial initiative to re-evaluate PBSO and possibly recreate a Lake Worth Police Department. Commissioner Maxwell was the only commissioner to vote against the 45K study and is very supportive of PBSO. He urges ALL citizens to write their representatives to voice their concerns over this issue. Homeland Security also made a presentation and encouraged us as citizens to report any suspicious terrorist like behavior. If you would like one of their flyers feel free to contact me. Finally, March 1st to 31st is "Lights Out" for sea turtles at our beach. Please do not remove the spikes that mark their nests on the beach. See www.marinelife.org for more info.
