Council Hears Summary of
2014 Legislative Session
At a workshop on Monday morning, the Town Council of Fort Myers Beach listened to an interesting summary on the state's 2014 Legislative Session from the Town's lobbyist in Tallahassee, Keith Arnold. They also held joint meetings with both the Audit Committee and the Bay Oaks Recreation Center Advisory Board (BORCAB)."Overall, this was an uncontroversial year, with a relatively small amount of bills that were passed,” Arnold began. "Issues with local governments' autonomy surface every year, and it's our job to address these. Some of these have merit - those that involve the health and welfare of the citizens of Florida - but quite often the state goes beyond that."
