I am pleased to announce the Board of County Commissioners approved a lower tax (millage) rate for the first time in 15 years. The 2023 rate will be reduced from 4.78 to 4.71 per $1,000 of taxable value for all commercial and residential properties. 

 

This will help offset the recent increases in appraised values the local real estate market has experienced over the past year. 

 

Additionally, with the current economic challenges, this was a prudent decision since we were able to balance the budget without any cuts to programs or services. 

 

The proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2023 is $6.7 billion, which represents an 11% increase over Fiscal Year 2022. Priorities include affordable and workforce housing, economic development, infrastructure, environmental protection and public safety.

 

We were also able to increase the county's reserve funds for emergencies such as hurricanes or other natural disasters to $226 million from $189 million in Fiscal Year 2019.


These reserves ensure the county's AAA bond rating and competitive interest rates, resulting in lower debt payments and substantial taxpayer savings.

 

As part of its Fiscal Year 2023 budget process, the Board of County Commissioners will hold two public hearings at Governmental Center, 301 N. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach.

 

The public is invited to attend the following budget workshops:

 

  • Sept. 13, 2022 at 5:05 p.m.
  • Sept. 20, 2022 at 5:05 p.m.

 

During these challenging times, nearly every household, business and community in our county has had to make difficult decisions. With that in mind, I will continue to work to control spending while providing improved services in an efficient and innovative manner.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, a scam caller is contacting the community and claiming to be a PBSO deputy.


Investigators say the scam caller is urging callers that a family member has a warrant for their arrest due to a missing court date.


The scammer will ask for money and request a payment to rectify the warrant or threaten to send a deputy to the resident's home to conduct an arrest.


If you receive a similar call, hang up and report it to PBSO.

Rip currents are intense, quick-moving water channels moving away from shore and account for more than 80% of beach rescues. It can be dangerous and deadly if unaware on how to react. 


If you get caught in a rip current:

  • stay calm, rip currents don't pull you under
  • don't swim against the current
  • swim out of the current in the direction following the shoreline
  • if you feel worn out - float
  • wave and yell to get the attention of lifeguards and people on shore


The best way to stay safe at the beach is to always swim near lifeguards and avoid swimming alone. 


Look for any warning signs or flags, and if you are unsure about conditions, follow the rule "if in doubt, do not go out."  


If you see someone caught in a rip current, always get help from a lifeguard! Many people have died trying to rescue rip current victims.

One of Palm Beach County's early attractions was an operation run by a man nicknamed "Alligator Joe."


He had a big, flowing mustache and sported a wide-brim hat.  One story placed him at 340 pounds which contributed to his remarkable specialty of mid-day wrestling matches with his alligators.


In an era with limited entertainment options, Alligator Joe took advantage. At his alligator farm along the Intracoastal Waterway, at the west end of what's now Worth Avenue, people laid out a quarter — about $7 in today's dollars — to see "hundreds of alligators and crocodiles."


The farm was about a mile from Henry Flagler's Royal Poinciana hotel and was a popular stop for hotel guests.
