I am very pleased to announce today that after several meetings with representatives of the plaintiff and myself in the matter of Christine Patton vs. the Town of Fort Myers Beach (filing #109979393 Twentieth Judicial Circuit) an agreement has been reached to end the lawsuit.
The culmination of this action was based upon a mutual understanding between the parties that it is time to put our differences behind us and move forward. The redevelopment of our core commerce area has been long overdue and now our residents, businesses and visitors can all look forward to the improvements soon to come on Fort Myers Beach. I am fond of the expression “a rising tide lifts all ships” and today I believe this will be the case here.
I’d like to personally thank all the parties involved in the resolution of this matter and, on behalf of the Town of Fort Myers Beach, in the spirit of cooperation, declare the dawn of a new day here on Fort Myers Beach.
