[ARCHIVED] From the Town Manager: Wednesday, August 8, 2018

 The Town Council has passed a “state of emergency” resolution to seek State and Federal aid for those adversely financially impacted. The local Mayors have taken similar action in their municipalities and collectively have asked the Lee County Commission to join them in seeking State and Federal assistance.  

Physical impacts reported as of noon today include Red Drift Algae beginning to accumulate on the north end of the island. Minimal fish are washing ashore onto the beach. The Town’s contracted workforce continues to clean by hand the Critical Wildlife Area. Canal monitoring/ cleaning is now being performed by one vessel and continues to monitor waterways of Fort Myers Beach. A planned raking of the beach is being scheduled to remove tire impressions left in the sand.  Town staff is monitoring the situation and it will be addressed accordingly. The Bay Oaks pool will be returning to normal fee entry mode beginning on Thursday, August 9, 2018.
