All’s square between the city and the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District for the first time in years.
    The district paid an unexpected almost $2 million for a beach renourishment project that Boca Raton thought the federal government would cover in 2010, when governments at all levels were battling the recession. The city found out last summer it would get the money from Washington after all.
    But the check to repay the district did not come immediately, prompting Commissioner Earl Starkoff to complain Jan. 20 that the district should withhold $2.4 million to Boca Raton for park operations and maintenance. Fellow commissioners approved the payment anyway.
    On Feb. 2, District Chairman Susan Vogelgesang announced the city had sent a check for $1,927,056.76 for the beach project.
