Fellow Hypoluxo residents and friends,
As Mayor I want to keep you informed as to what is happening here in the Town of Hypoluxo, your town. Your elected officials and staff are dedicated to keeping Hypoluxo a town of which you can be proud. Your input and suggestions are always welcome, and I encourage you to participate in your local government through the election process and by attending the monthly Council meetings scheduled on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM.
The traditional Holiday Open House for the Town of Hypoluxo will be held on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 from 5PM-7PM. Everyone is welcome to come enjoy some tasty hors d’oeuvres and yummy desserts while getting to know your elected officials and fellow Hypoluxo residents. You will also experience some great music and entertainment. It will be an enjoyable time so please make an effort to attend.

While the statistics indicate a percentage increase of 10% in crime compared to the first half of 2016, the raw number is an increase of 3 crimes (33 in 2017 versus 30 in 2016). Burglaries, larcenies, and motor vehicle thefts account for the majority of our crime. Everyone in Hypoluxo can help to reduce our crime rate by taking proactive measures like locking vehicles, not leaving valuables visible in your cars and trucks, not leaving your house doors unlocked nor garage doors opened and unattended. Please do everything you can to protect yourself and your possessions. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Crime statistic updates are discussed on a quarterly basis at our Council meetings by the Lantana Police department.
Tuesday, March 13, 2018 is election day. You will have a have a chance to exercise your civic privilege by voting in your Town’s election. The election will be for the Mayor and two Town Council members.
