Fellow Hypoluxo residents and friends,
The renovation of the outside of Hypoluxo Town Hall is completed. I hope you are as happy and proud of our government facility as I am. If you have not been to nor seen Town Hall recently, you will be pleasantly surprised. Please take the opportunity to visit soon. The roof has been cleaned, the total exterior has been painted and looks like new, the parking lot has been restriped, and a new decorative surface has been applied to the entrance and walkway around the building. As you know we have one of the best facilities in Palm Beach County if not the entire State of Florida. The recently completed renovations should keep our Town Hall looking beautiful for years to come.
The next major undertaking to Town Hall will be to have the interior renovated. This will include repairing any water-damaged areas, redesigning the Police substation area including new, modern lockers for the Officers, updating the audio/visual equipment in the Council Chambers, modernizing the office spaces and, finally, a complete repainting of the interior. We will start this project soon.
The Town of Hypoluxo was awarded a $200,000 Recreational Trail Funding grant with a $50,000 Town match to pave the Hypoluxo Natural Scrub Area. The entrance as well as the parking spaces in the Scrub Area will be cement paved making visiting the Scrub much more pleasant and you won’t have to wash your vehicle after the visit. This project will be consummated as soon as we can advertise and award a bid for the job. Hopefully the project will be completed during fiscal year 2019.
The Town’s web site is currently being upgraded and modernized. I am sure you will like the new, user-friendly, modern look. I will notify you when the new web page is available.
Only a few of the old wooden poles along Federal Highway remain. I am still working with the three parties—FPL, Comcast, and AT&T to get the last remaining poles removed. Hopefully this will be completed by the end of September 2018.
The Town of Hypoluxo is quite beautiful and the drive on Federal Highway is pleasant, well manicured and uncluttered. I want to thank all of the residents and Homeowner’s Associations for their help in keeping your properties tidy. If we all continue to do our part, Hypoluxo will remain the gem that it is. Thank you.
Remember we are still in the heights of hurricane season. We have been blessed thus far with no storms and we hope and pray to be spared the remainder of the season. With that said, if you haven’t taken steps to prepare your homes and landscaping for any potential storm, please do so now while you still have time. Please do not wait until the last minute.
Please enjoy the peace and quiet of no train horns being sounded except in emergencies.
Finally, before you undertake and major renovations or major repairs, you would be wise to contact Town Hall to determine the necessity of obtaining proper permitting. The Town’s reason for permitting is FOR YOUR PROTECTION to ensure you are using properly licensed and insured contractors and that the job is completed correctly by final inspection by our Building Officials.
I hope this information is useful to you. Please continue to check the web site for updates.
Michael Brown, Mayor
