LAKE WORTH — City Commissioners tonight by a 4-1 vote approved a resolution identifying the local roads that will be repaired if the $40 million bond referendum passes in November.

Commissioner Christopher McVoy was in opposition.

The city went down a similar path in 2014 when it put a $63 million bond request before voters. It failed by 25 votes. Unlike the previous request, the city has said this bond has been stripped down, with the money only to be used for road repairs and improvements.

The resolution also includes the creation of a Citizens Advisory Committee that will review all expenditures.

McVoy said the committee should represent a wide variety of views, to which Commissioner Andy Amoroso responded, “They’re just going to make sure your money is being spent on infrastructure and roads. That’s all they’re doing.”
