We’ve been receiving costly mail pieces more...

It seems that a virus is hitting Palm Beach County private golf communities where it is becoming an acceptable practice for developers to purchase private golf courses, destroy them and then apply for rezoning, which destroys the lifestyles of the existing communities.
