It is Friday, May 6, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
The restaurant, which serves healthy, Mediterranean and organic food, according to its website, already has a West Palm Beach location. The Boynton location will be in Boynton Town Center at 970 N. Congress Ave.
There has been a little bit of a reorganization in the city staff at Boynton Beach.
The city has been looking at how to replace Carisse LeJeune, who was the assistant city manager. LeJeune, who started working at the city in 2000, retired at the end of 2015.
City Manager Lori LaVerriere has decided it would be best to have two assistant city managers. Tim Howard, who was the director of financial services, is now an assistant city manager for administrative services. And, Colin Groff, who is the director of the utilities department, is now assistant city manager for public services.
The City Commission voted to approve the moves earlier this month.
Well, the tower rehab has started. And the structure is there as part of the sandblasting process.
The water tower will be a prominent part of the incoming Water Tower Commons retail and residential development, owned by the developer — Lantana Development LLC. Lantana Development is is a partnership between Southeast Legacy, headed by Kenco Communities’ Ken Endelson, and Wexford Capital.
Sandblasting the tower will show any metal pieces needing repair, said Mike Langolf, of Southeast Legacy. The tower will be painted white. The whole process should take about five months, he said.
Also, crews are relocating about 60 trees on the property to buffer areas and to the center area of the development.
It is unclear when construction on the commercial part of the project will begin. The residential phase will begin after the commercial.
All Aboard Florida crews will be making construction improvements starting this weekend in Boynton Beach. Here’s what intersections will be closed and when:
The intersection of Martin Luther King Blvd./NE 10th Avenue and the Florida East Coast Railway, and NE 6th Avenue and the Florida East Coast Railway, will close Saturday at 7 a.m. Both intersections will reopen Tuesday at 6 p.m.
UPDATE: Health officials Thursday afternoon said it is OK to swim in Lantana Beach and Dubois Park.
ORIGINAL POST: Health officials have issued a “No Swimming” advisory for Lantana Beach after recent samples showed “poor” levels of enterococcus bacteria, according to a news release.
The tests showed 120 colonies per 100 milliliters of marine water at the beach.
The exact cause of the elevated level of bacteria isn’t known at the time, but it could be because of wildlife, heavy recreational usage, high surf, high tides, or runoff following heavy rains, according to the release.
The Dubois Park Wading Lagoon has also been issued a “No Swimming” advisory. Test results showed 130 colonies per 100 milliliters of marine water.
Boynton Beach City Commissioners said Tuesday night they want to save the historic high school from demolition, but tabled a decision on a proposal to do so until about August.
The commissioners had a choice to make: Begin negotiations with Rick Gonzalez’ for his plan of turning the 1927 building into a community cultural center; throw out Gonzalez’s plan; or table it.
Commissioners went with the latter because of an ongoing three-year lawsuit many thought would be over by now. The suit accuses the city of breach of contract after commissioners voted down Juan Contin’s plan to use private money to develop the school into an events and destination center.
Contin, through Boynton Old School Partnership LLC, has filed three amended complaints in the lawsuit. The court will decide in July if the latest complaint will be dismissed, and if it is, if the plaintiff can file another amended one. If the court doesn’t offer another chance, the lawsuit will be over. But the plaintiff could file an appeal, according to city documents. Contin is asking for money he would have made if the project had gone through.
In the meantime, the city still has to figure out if it has the millions of dollars Gonzalez is asking for to contribute to his plan. The city hasn’t looked into that yet because of the lawsuit, according to documents.
