Palm Beach Officials Start Holding Talk of the Town Meetings

Palm Beach officials began holding Talk of the Town meetings in order to keep the residents in the loop about the most recent news regarding the town. The first Talk of the Town meeting was held at the Midtown firehouse on Wednesday afternoon.

Town Council President Michael Pucillo and council member Richard Kleid discussed various town projects and updated about 50 people who were present at the meeting on the progress with undergrounding, talked about plans for the recreation center, shore protection and public safety pensions.

Lew Crampton, chair of the Citizens’ Association of Palm Beach that sponsored the entire event, was pleased that residents were allowed to voice concerns about how the authorities are spending their tax money and also discuss pressing issues.

Some of the people who attended the meeting expressed their concerns about the shoreline near Clarke Ave, and Pucillo stated that the shore board will hear about it at their next meeting on November 25th at 9 a.m. Pucillo also announced that the renourishment plan is going well and that Reach 7 is in “excellent condition”.

Undergrounding was also discussed at the meeting, and according to Crampton, the Town of Palm Beach is searching for a way to offset the cost of the project and are looking into a deal to lay broadband cable down. On Thursday, Crampton stated that the first phase of the project was important because it would paint a clearer picture on what the budget for it would look like.

There are four Talk of the Town events planned for this season in total. The next will take place on December 21st and will deal with the town’s beaches primarily. Rob Weber, coastal program manager, and Paul Brazil, director of public works, will be speaking at the event.
