I started Paws on the Avenue 23 years ago. When I opened in 1999, the Gulfstream Hotel was open and we stayed open daily until 9 pm because of all the foot traffic it brought to our door.
Since the Gulfstream closed we have had to scale back our hours to 7 pm during the week. I chose Lake Worth Beach to open my business because of the small town feel and pet friendly atmosphere but I also saw the potential for growth.
I have seen commissioners come and go over the years kicking the Gulfstream restoration down the road. Enough of this. This should be a unanimous vote and everyone should support the Gills wholeheartedly and give them what they need to begin the restoration. The taxpayers want and need this.
