A member of the City Commission of Lake Worth Beach, Florida, excoriated the city's mayor and city manager for what he deemed was a failure to respond effectively to the COVID-19 outbreak.
"This is a banana republic, is what you're turning this place into with your so-called leadership," Commissioner Omari Hardy shouted at Mayor Pam Triolo at a meeting of the city commission on Thursday. "We should have been talking about this last week. We cut off people's utilities this week and made them pay what could have been their last check to us to turn their lights on in a global health pandemic!"
Thursday's dispute capped off a local power struggle that appears to have riven the city's government, stemming from a series of objections Hardy had raised about the delegation of powers during the COVID-19 emergency.
The Palm Beach Post earlier reported on an email that was sent to Triolo and the commissioners by City Manager Michael Bornstein, who is appointed by the commission, in order to "clarify and reaffirm" his authority to "make and implement temporary changes" to governance decisions.
"I have the authority to temporarily change and adjust operations especially during an emergency," Bornstein wrote, according to the Post.
Hardy has complained about Bornstein's managerial role during the crisis, especially because he said Lake Worth Beach, located in coastal central Palm Beach County, has not formally declared an emergency. Responding to a video address Triolo delivered laying out the city's emergency management protocol, Hardy objected, calling it "propaganda."
