Lantana has had many projects and enhancements completed in 2019. Several water mains have been replaced throughout the town to increase water flow and pressure in many neighborhoods. Numerous streets have been repaved.
On our great beach, the bathrooms have been renovated and a deck has been added to the oceanfront pavilion.
Lantana’s town events were a great success, including Movie Nights at the Beach, an Easter Egg Hunt, Fourth of July Celebration, Haunted Nature Preserve and Winterfest, to name a few.
For the 20th consecutive year, the town was awarded a certificate for excellence in financial reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association. We were also proud to receive an award from the Florida Urban Forestry Council for Tree City USA.
Looking ahead, Lantana will continue its focus on projects to improve and beautify the town, including sidewalk improvements, repaving and restriping of roads, improvements to the Lantana Municipal Beach including an ADA accessible ramp, interior renovations to the library and improving town-owned property. FDOT is resurfacing South Dixie Highway and the town will be planting four landscape islands.
Lantana strives to be responsive to the needs of our residents and to make decisions based on what is good for all in the long term. The Town Council and staff continue to work together toward maintaining public safety and enhancing the quality of life here.
It has been an honor to serve as your mayor for the last 19 years and, in 2020, I will continue the momentum of previous years in striving to make Lantana a great place to live, work and play.
