R. Michael Brown  |  Our Town  |  Public Safety  |  Tax and Finance  |  March 30, 2019

Featuring Bob Wright, Palm Beach Civic Association Chairman and CEO

This week Civic Association Chairman Bob Wright sat down with Town Manager Kirk Blouin for our Civic Association “IN THE KNOW” news video to take a candid look back over the last nine or ten years and understand how the Town of Palm Beach has gone through challenges, especially in the last year since Mr. Blouin has been Town Manager.

They covered how the Town responded to the challenges of the Great Recession ten years ago and what the fallout has been with Town employee retention and hiring, compensation and benefit plans, employee pensions, growing leadership, an active town council to fix the problems, the slow wheels of government, and the future.
