Here’s The Scoop

Public Notices….

BCbythesea…has inquired often…in previous posts about the lack of LBTS public notices in the Sun- Sentinel….for town commission meetings….

The word we received…

According to the Town Manager …it is not required…

So then why do all the neighboring municipalities employ this practice?

Why in this time of tight budgets would they continue?

Sun-Sentinel charges $1.89 per line…

usually meetings are put in 7 days ahead of the meeting….or whatever the Charter says…

BCbythesea Googled for a definitive answer on the state law…. for posting commission meetings in publications…

finding no substantive answer…

BCbythesea sent an inquiry to the Fl. State rules and regulations division……

asking for the requirement…

asking if it must be in theĀ  Charter as a requirement or not?…

asking if a town administrator can make the decision to publish in public notices or not …independently?

BCbythesea….opinion….

Either our Town Manager has once again astutely saved LBTS from unnecessary expenditures…which would be wonderful…andĀ  therefor…. should be made known to other municipalities looking for ways to trim their own budgets….

or…

A big mistake is ongoing…and it must be remedied…

Update will be forthcoming…
