Fort Myers beach City Council won’t get 30% plans before next stormwater vote

FORT MYERS BEACH – In January, the Fort Myers Beach Town Council voted nay against funding a 30 percent survye and design plan for the rest of the island's stormwater.

In March, the council reversed that decision, unanimously voting to approve a street-by-street survey and 30 percent design by Tetra Tech to get a birds-eye view of the town's stormwater needs.

It was an about-face urged by Tetra Tech and town staff, with both staffs hailing this plan as a vital tool for making stormwater decision in the future.

But despite that urgency, the council was told Monday it won't be getting that plan until October - and it will be asked to vote on several steps in stormwater project at its Sept. 4 meeting.
