Letter: A Season Of Healing

I wish to thank Mayor Dave Browning, Vice Mayor Ron Jarriel and Councilman Tom Goltzené for extending the contract for town management with Underwood Management.

Vice Mayor Jarriel, your decision to retain Underwood Management is a positive kickstart for placing Loxahatchee Groves in a forward direction. I wish to thank you for considering the thoughts and concerns of our town brothers and sisters. Your decision is right and proper. Thank You.

May now be the time for healing to begin in the Groves.

Groves residents want real leadership that focuses energy on fixing issues confronting Groves residents. The equestrian and nurserymen seek support of their industries by considering controlled seasonal temporary housing. Residents living on Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District roads have been asking for years for the council to take steps to keep our air dust free and provide safer roads. Residents have been asking for neighborhood improvements and physical infrastructure upgrades.

It is time to make the LGWCD dependent to the Town of Loxahatchee Groves. Please consider maintaining or even lowering the millage rate. And, like always, the council needs to provide citizens access to equal representation. All residents of Loxahatchee Groves are deserving of equal benefit from the council’s actions.

Keith Harris, Loxahatchee Groves
