Boynton Beach city leaders to discuss block parties

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - On Tuesday night, city leaders in Boynton Beach are expected discuss how to get a better handle on block parties.

The parties typically start at Sara Simms Park near Seacrest and MLK boulevards.  Some parties attract hundreds of people, who then spread into surrounding neighborhoods.

Police said a Palm Beach Lakes High School student was shot to death at a block party the day after Christmas.

Commissioners said they will talk about ways to permit and regulate these activities at the park.
