Celebrating the Town of Lantana’s 90th Birthday!
Hi again everyone.
I hope many of you were able to stop by for the 90th Birthday celebrations that were held down at town hall at Greynolds Circle yesterday.
There was live music, including Monique McCall and The Salty Pirates, as well as the Old School New School Band, as well as vendors, some really cool classic cars, play fun, exhibits, demos, and displays by the U.S. Coast Guard and PBC Fire-Rescue. And, there was the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of the New Police Annex Building (formerly the Lion’s Club lodge) by our town mayor, Dave Stewart, accompanied by various official visitors.
The Police Annex, which will house administrative offices for the town police, is the first of its kind for the town, for it is built to meet new energy efficiency standards with a grant of $217,681 from the Dept. of Energy/American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (that is, Stimulus funds). It has solar paneling, as well as high efficiency air-conditioning, increased insulation and other conservation features.
Let’s hope that our own town library building is slated next to receive some upgrading, as I was told by Town Manager Mike Bornstein that additional funds were on their way for the town and several other partner towns.
