A resolution urging the federal government to find money to finish shoring up the Lake Okeechobee dike is one of the items on the agenda for today’s meeting of the Palm Beach County Commission.

Other items on the agenda:

Settlement: Set to agree to a $600,000 settlement award in its 2015 federal lawsuit alleging an insurer improperly withheld workers compensation to Larry Aversano, a county Fire-Rescue employee injured in 1986 and 1988.

Change order: Set to accept a change order on work on the roadway near 20-Mile-Bend in western Palm Beach County, which will result in savings of $1.24 million, to be split among the feds, the state and the county.

Water truck: Expected to approve $300,00, to match a federal grant, for a $600,000 high-pressure water truck for Palm Beach International Airport, to clean up debris, spills and other materials from runways and ramps. The county previously had hired contractors but staff said having its own truck was more cost-effective.

Magar: Will honor State Rep. MaryLynn Magar, R-Hobe Sound, who’s ending her 1-year term as chair of the Palm Beach County Legislative Delegation; her likely successor is Vice Chair Bobby Powell, D-West Palm Beach, depending on if he wins his State Senate bid.

Palm Beach County Commission Meeting:

When: 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Where: Sixth-floor chambers, Weisman Palm Beach County Governmental Center, 301 N. Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach
