Ocean Ridge: Current and former mayors, neighbors urged judicial leniency for Lucibella

By Steve Plunkett



Letters of support from Ocean Ridge mayors, neighbors and business acquaintances seeking leniency for Richard Lucibella also exposed a lack of support for the police officers who went to his home and for the subsequent media coverage.

The onetime vice mayor, 65, will spend no time behind bars or under probation for a 2016 backyard altercation with Ocean Ridge police. Instead he paid $675 in court costs.

“Simply put, Rich is a wonderful,…

Editor’s Note: Are we willing to pay now to save paradise for future?

$378 million to keep a city above water. $45 million for renovations along A1A. $25 million to keep sand on the beach. These are a few of the dramatic numbers we’ve seen discussed in our coastal area recently.

The cost of updating our aging infrastructure is not going to be cheap. Retaining paradise is about to get expensive.

Thankfully, taxpayers in Palm Beach County voted in 2017 for an extra 1-cent sales tax. A portion of that revenue will be returned to municipalities over a…

The bridge spans were locked down on Feb. 18 after defects were found in some bolts. The eastern half of the double-span bridge reopened Feb. 21, Meve said. That allows 90 percent of the marine traffic to get through, he said.

“The Woolbright Bridge has a…

Letter to the Editor: Ocean Ridge transition needs wise leaders

As a longtime Fortune 500 senior executive and business owner, I knew the right location was critical when we moved here from New Jersey as full-time residents.
