Learn more about the Neighborhood Road Bond Ballot Question

The City of Lake Worth website has a great deal of information about the upcoming ballot question regarding issuing a bond to repair roads.  Go to http://www.lakeworth.org/topics/2016/bond/ .  Here you will see the exact language of the ballot question–NOTE it is the only question on the BACK of the ballot.  There is a tax calculator to help you estimate how much the bond would increases taxes on your property if you are a property owner.  There are detailed maps showing which streets are within the plan as well as listing of streets within each district.  There’s lots of information about the condition of the roads and how they have been evaluated and ranked.
