April Newsletter 2017
We are excited about building a relationship with Johnson-Davis Inc. as we provide public involvement services for their Boynton Beach North and South Roads stormwater system repairs. Johnson-Davis Inc. has worked on underground utility projects since 1977, including storm drainage, water main, sanitary sewer, and force main, sheeting, and dewatering. The Boynton Harbor Estates Neighborhood experiences periodic roadway flooding, which has affected the residential property owners in the vicinity of North and South Roads. To improve the quality and reliability of the neighborhood utilities, the City of Boynton Beach will provide a new stormwater system that will collect the stormwater and discharge through shallow outfalls located along the north edge of North Road and at the southeast corner of the neighborhood. The project should be completed by late October 2017.

BUCK'S CORNER: How I Spent My Spring Break Vacation: By Buck Merchant
Hi, it's me, Buck. Mom says I should tell you all about my awesome vacation in Carolina Beach. We got to go for a whole week! No work at all! My Aunt Lisa and Uncle Chris drove me and my friend Tink up (ok, her real name is Tinkerbell Holland, but I call her Tink). It took all day long, so I just took a major power nap. Mom says I am a highly skilled napper. Whatever. I met new friends there and got to run on the beach every day - so cool. The water kept chasing me, but I got away. The coolest thing of all is that I got to go to a real bar! Mom and Aunt Lisa made friends with Miss Loretta - she owns the bar. Miss Loretta is kinda old, but she loooovves dogs, so I got to sit in the bar - Tink did too. It was cold there so I got to wear my super cool FSU jacket. Loved it! Hope we get to go back next year.
