Letter from the Mayor | State Revolving Fund Loan | 2 Inch Steel Water Distribution Pipes

April 8, 2015
Open Letter to the Residents of Lake Worth
RE:  State Revolving Fund Loan for Replacement of 2 inch Steel Water Distribution Pipes

My Fellow Lake Worth Resident:
I hope you had a good morning.  For most of us, that means taking a shower, getting the kids ready for school, fixing tea or coffee and rushing out the door.  When you turn the water faucet, you probably don’t even think about whether water will come out and how it gets there.  That is the City’s responsibility, and our team of water utility professionals provide that service proudly.  We recognize that safe, clean water is a fundamental service for residents to maintain their quality of life, and we are dedicated to providing that service so you can depend on it.  Read Full Text

Phase 1 Upgrade of Natural Gas Lines | Begins March 23

Florida Public Utilities has embarked upon upgrading & installing new pipes throughout the City.  The replacement project will abandon the old steel mains & service lines & replace them with new polyethylene piping which is corrosion resistant & has a longer service life, thus minimizing breaks, gas leaks, and improving service to Lake Worth customers.   Please be cautious during construction & understand there may be temporary limited access on roads & in the alleyways.  Phase 1 Maps | Gas Reliability Infrastructure Program

For more information, you may email Florida Public Utilities' GRIP department at GRIPinfo@fpuc.com or call Customer Service at 800.427.7712

Phone Scam Targeting LW Utility  Customers

Phone scammers posing as City of Lake Worth employees are targeting customers across our service territory. These scammers may use false phone numbers that could appear on a caller ID to be City of Lake Worth. They then threaten to shut the power off unless a payment is made immediately with a Green Dot MoneyPak card or personal credit card. These calls are not from us. We will never call and demand credit card information or take Green Dot MoneyPak cards as payment with the threat of disconnection. In fact, we do not ask for any personal information from you unless you initiate the contact.

If you ever receive a strange call and are in doubt, hang up and call us at 561-533-7300. Authorities have been notified of this scam. It seems to be affecting utilities across the nation. If you think you may have been a victim, please contact us at 561-533-7300 or make a Suspicious Incident Report with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office at 561-688-3400.  Once you have a case number, contact us and we will forward to the Detective in charge.

Screen on the Green 2015

Last Summer the LULA Lake Worth Arts Program received a grant from the Department of Cultural Affairs to project outdoor movies at the Cultural Plaza.

The Screen on the Green events  provided free movies  that touched on arts and culture & encouraged residents & visitors to spend an evening in Downtown Lake Worth. 

This year LULA is trying a new approach to raise enough funding to bring Screen on the Green back to Lake Worth for the Summer of 2015.  LULA Lake Worth Arts submitted a Screen on the Green Project to  Power2Give .  This is an online fundraising site that helps fund art and culture related projects from the community.

Grassy Flats Project at Old Bridge Park

Palm Beach County is constructing Grassy Flats - an 11 acre wetlands restoration project situated west of the Par 3 Golf Course off of the Town of Palm Beach.  The far west end of Old Bridge Park will be utilized as a staging area for the project and will be fenced off for safety purposes.  The remainder of the Park will remain open.
