Notification of Roadway Construction

NOTIFICATION OF ROADWAY CONSTRUCTION - PARK AVENUE TO NORTHLAKE BLVD.

FOR AFFECTED PROPERTIES: The Palm Beach County Engineering and Public Works Department will be starting road improvements along Old Dixie Highway. This construction may require the clearing of most, if not all of the area within the limits of construction, from Park Avenue to Northlake Boulevard. Therefore, it is important that should you have any manmade items such as fences, landscaping of any type, irrigation systems or any other items within the area to be cleared, that they be removed prior to 5/19/17. Construction will commence on or about 5/26/17. The County, or its agents, will not be able to save any of these items if they remain within the temporary construction easement area after construction begins. The area will be staked within the limits of the project. This, hopefully, will enable you to determine whether you have items within the temporary construction easement. Please contact the Palm Beach County Right-of-Way Section at 561-684-4124 with any questions

FOR MOTORISTS AND PEDESTRIANS: Please be advised that the extent of construction will be from Park Avenue to Northlake Blvd. Please use extra caution while traveling the area as construction begins and progresses. Extra traffic signage will be placed to notify of changes to traffic patterns.

Hear something, say something - Noise Complaints

How to Make a Noise Complaint:

On January 20, 2016, the Town of Lake Park adopted Ordinance 01-2016, commonly referred to as the “Noise Ordinance”, which was included in the Town’s Code of Ordinances as Chapter 10 Article VI.  The following is a link to this section of the Town Code.  https://www.municode.com/library/fl/lake_park/codes/code_of_ordinances/262053?nodeId=SPAGEOR_CH10EN_ARTIVNOCO

The purpose of this Ordinance is to provide for the peaceful enjoyment of the properties, businesses and residences of the Town by adopting appropriate regulations to regulate noise throughout the Town in order to promote the public health, safety and general welfare of the public. 

In order for this Noise Ordinance to work, the Town needs your help

If you hear loud music or a similar noise disturbance in a Town public park, public right-of-way or coming from private property, contact the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) District 10 Dispatch at 561-688-3466 or 561-688-3400 at the time that the noise disturbance is occurring so that PBSO can send a deputy to respond in “real time”.  In order for PBSO to take action, there must be a complaint called in by a complainant (i.e., Town resident, business owner, or visitor).  The complainant cannot be a PBSO deputy or a Town Code Compliance Officer. You can call in a noise complaint and remain anonymous

From Monday to Friday, between the hours of 8:30am-5:00pm, except holidays, complaints can also be called in to Code Compliance at (561) 881-3321 – please be sure to speak to a LIVE person since these complaints need to be addressed in “real time”.  Again, you can remain anonymous.

Remember –  hear something, say something
by calling PBSO or Code Compliance as soon as possible.

FREE PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD PROGRAM

START SAVING ON PRESCRIPTIONS TODAY! 


The Town is a participant in the National League of Cities (NLC) Prescription Discount Card Program through which prescription discounts are available at participating pharmacies including Walgreens, Costco, CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, Publix Pharmacy, and Robalo Pharmacy. The Town worked diligently with NLC officials in getting the information regarding this important program translated into Haitian Creole, which has resulted in the information being available to Town residents in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. Town residents may pick up a Free Prescription Discount Card at Lake Park's Town Hall or the Lake Park Public Library.


This prescription discount card program is not insurance, it is a prescription discount program that is free to Town residents and can provide savings of up to 75 percent off the retail price of prescription medication.  It cannot be used to supplement insurance benefits; however, residents who are without health insurance or a traditional pharmacy benefit plan or who have prescriptions not covered by insurance, are able to obtain their medications at a discount.  The cards are widely accepted at all national chain pharmacies and most local independent pharmacies.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS RESOURCES

The Town of Lake Park participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a federal program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that enables property owners to purchase insurance protection against flooding losses.  Since Lake Park properly manages a floodplain Ordinance, the Town’s home and business owners are eligible to participate in NFIP and are eligible for a discount on flood insurance. 

 

NFIP coverage is available to all owners of insurable property, including buildings and/or contents; owners and renters may insure their personal property; and builders of buildings in the course of construction, condominium associations, and owners of residential condominium units.  A policy may be purchased from any licensed property insurance agent or broker in good standing with the state or through any agent representing a Write Your Own (WYO) company.


DON’T GET BLOWN AWAY
