LW potholesLAKE WORTH — If you want a closer look at how the city plans to spend $40 million to fix its many potholes, here’s your chance.

The city is hosting a Community Involvement Meeting, scheduled for Feb. 22 and 23. The meeting, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. will be held at 1121 Lucerene Avenue.

The city said the purpose is to discuss roadway projects and to get feedback on what improvements residents would like to see.

The meeting on Wednesday will deal with residents in District 3 – N. M Street from Lucerne Avenue to 19th Avenue N. (Wellesley Drive).

The gathering on Feb. 23 is for District 3 – N. K Street from Lucerne Avenue to 9th Avenue N., N. J Street from 13th Avenue N. to 16th Avenue N. and 14th and 15th Avenue N. from N. J Street to Dixie Highway.

Engineering firms and project planners will be meeting with residents in the coming months. In addition, a citizen oversight committee has been formed to make sure all money is spent only on roads.

The city has said work is expected to start in the spring or summer.

Residents in November overwhelmingly approved the $40 million road bond question.
