I know it's just a five letter word after Lake Worth but it does feel weird to say! Well boys and girls it looks like the city of Lake Worth is officially Lake Worth Beach. Yesterday voters decided to change the name but it sure was a close one. 51% said yes and 49% didn't want it to happen. Some residents are upset and city leaders are saying the change could cost up to $100,000.
The game plan is simple...it's all about tourist. Lake Worth Beach is hoping to attract more people to the community by having the word "beach" in their name. If you grew up here you know some parts of Lake Worth...oops I mean Lake Worth Beach can be shady. The city has reported crime has gone down in the last year and hope the new name will attract more residents.
