BOYNTON BEACH FIREFIGHTER’S BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION SEEKS DONATIONS FOR 9-11 MEMORIAL
BOYNTON BEACH, FL --- The Boynton Beach Firefighter’s Benevolent Association is actively seeking donations to cover the cost for the construction and placement of a 9-11 Memorial in Veteran’s Park. A year and a half in the making, the South Florida 9-11 Foundation, comprised of retired New York City firefighters, was instrumental in working with the Fire Commission and 9-11 Foundation in New York City to secure a 40 pound, 12” x 14”, piece of steel from World Trade Center. The granite memorial will be adorned with a bronze plaque representing the significant events of September 11, 2001, that led to the deaths of 2982 innocent bystanders.
The total cost to produce and place the memorial is $6,250. Donations may be made on-line at www.boyntonbeachfirefighters.com or sent by mail to the Boynton Beach Firefighter’s Benevolent Association, Attn: Fire Chief Ray Carter, 2080 High Ridge Road, Boynton Beach, Florida, 33426. Checks should be made payable to the “Boynton Beach Firefighter’s Benevolent Association”, with “9-11 Memorial”, placed on the memo line of the check.
The Boynton Beach Firefighter’s Benevolent Association is a 501(c) 3 charitable organization. All donations are tax deductible. Receipts will be issued for tax purposes.
The unveiling and dedication will be planned once $6,250 is secured in donations. For more information, contact Ray Carter, Fire Chief, by calling 561-742-6329 or emailing email@example.com.

Boynton Beach to Flush WATER Lines with Chlorine
BOYNTON BEACH, FL --- The City of Boynton Beach will temporarily modify the disinfection process utilized to treat its drinking water from July 15 through August 16. Customers may notice a slight chlorine taste, or odor, in their tap water. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. Those sensitive to the taste, or odor, of chlorine, can place an open container of drinking water in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. This is a preventative maintenance process in order to maintain the City’s high standard of clean water distribution. For more information, please call 561-742-6964.
