Morning Juice: A Plan for Protecting Coast Without Relying on BP; Waterslides May Be Next Tourist Trap
The news this Wednesday morning in Broward and Palm Beach:
- Palm Beach County doesn't trust BP to protect its sensitive marine life. The county is looking to hire a private contractor to install booms that can soak up oil along 14 miles of waterway. BP will be expected to pick up the tab. [Palm Beach Post]
- The layoff of more than 1,000 Broward County School District employees became official last night at the School Board meeting. It's a necessary step for closing a $131 million budget shortfall. [WPLG-10]
- Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale may be replaced by a waterpark now that city commissioners have voted to begin negotiations with a developer who claims his attraction would bring 10,000 visitors per day. [Sun-Sentinel]
