These 9 will decide which direction the LBTS largest civic organization will go…

They are in majority position now… with 4 members on the commission and the majority of seats on the town boards…

it will be a fine line…between the past of being a “watchdog” group to what defines them going forth….

What will be their issues?

Will they be in concert with the commission…or independent?

Will the organization grow….remain steady or decline due to the change of their position in town?

North Beach Civic Organization…

will meet in Jarvis Hall Monday May 12…6:30 pm

presenting Jerry Bookman…Fl. Ins. expert…

How will the turnout be for this meeting compared to the packed room last time…when the topic was Palm Club and De-annexation?

Will Mark Brown once again address these issues?

Will the north end be representative of both sides…. for and against?

Will beach access be discussed?

This organization may need re-defining also…. due to now being in the minority on the commission and on town boards….

What will be their issues?

Will they grow … remain steady or diminish with those on opposing side of the annexation/sewer/ beach access walking away?

Quite an interesting time …with the changeover almost 3 months ago…

Note: Those in charge of both organizations….

will be keeping track of the current majority on the commission…. Town Hall Administration…for any clues who could be the majority in the next election… nearly 2 years away…
