Palm Beach County Commissioner Shelley Vana lashed out at several top county managers on Tuesday over bus service, saying that a legal maneuver they recommended to smooth-over union issues failed to address “horrific” problems with the county’s door-to-door buses for the elderly and disabled.
Vana, a critic of Metro Mobility, the company hired to run the county’s Palm Tran Connection bus service, took aim at a team of top staffers during Tuesday’s meeting, including Palm Tran director Chuck Cohen and Assistant County Administrator Shannon LaRocque.

The Palm Beach County Commission on Tuesday took the following action:
Lake Park marina: Tentatively agreed to allow Lake Park officials to reduce the number of parking spaces required on a 1-acre site near the town marina. The county required the site have 30 parking spaces when it agreed to give Lake Park $2.4 million in waterfront access bond money to buy the property. The new plan calls for 27 parking spaces, town officials said.
Historic properties: Approved county property tax exemptions for four historic properties in Palm Beach: The Breakers hotel on South County Road; The Everglades Club on Worth Avenue; a residential property at 691 North County Road, and a home at 300 Barton Avenue.
