LAKE WORTH — It’s basically business as usual in the city after Hurricane Matthew.

And that’s a good thing.

The only exception is city crews are still picking up vegetation piles it couldn’t get to on Friday, City Manager Michael Bornstein said.

So, what about the gumbo limbo tree that fall outside the City Hall Annex?

“It’s been re-staked by Smart Plants and we expect it to keep on growing and putting down roots,
Bornstein said. “Like our city, it is resilient and in a great spot.”
