Council Wants 90 Days to Review Seafarer’s
On Monday afternoon, the Town Council held a Special Meeting to respond to the county’s recent announcement that it plans to move forward with the demolition of the Seafarer’s Mall building. In a letter dated March 22nd, Commission Chairman Frank Mann stated the county’s intention is to discuss the issue at the Tourist Development Council meeting on April 8th and to make a final decision at the commission meeting on April 12th. Before getting in to the Seafarer’s discussion, the council agreed to allow the Fort Myers Beach Fire District to use council chambers for their union negotiation sessions, scheduled for Friday, April 1st at 9am (District 3) and Tuesday, April 19th at 9am (District 15 and supervisors). Upon invitation from the council, the District already uses council chambers for their commission meetings and workshops.
