LAKE WORTH — The city’s pothole workshop to reveal which roads will be fixed if the $40 million bond referendum passes in November may be Thursday night, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find any information on what the city plans to present.
The city asked A.D.A. Engineering of West Palm Beach to update data on the condition of the city’s roads. The city was going to use that information to determine which roads would get priority to be repaired first.
Lake Worth officials received the report nearly two weeks ago. The Palm Beach Post made several attempts to get a copy, but the city didn’t make it available as of late Wednesday afternoon.
The Palm Beach Post also reached out to A.D.A. Engineering. In an email Brent Whitfield, an associate vice president, wrote he needed to contact the city to request direction.
“We will proceed according to the direction of our client,” Whitfield wrote.
The report, which is a few hundred pages long, also wasn’t posted on the city’s website as part of the backup material for the workshop agenda.
Is this considered transparency?
