[ARCHIVED] FIVE THINGS TO KNOW THIS WEEK
1) WATER CUSTOMERS:
If you are not using water at your property, the Utilities Department can waive your water and sewer base fees. We will then lock your water meter to prevent future charges. Email the Utilities Department at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and service address. All water customers are required to continue paying stormwater fees. https://www.fortmyersbeachfl.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=985
2) DEBRIS DEADLINE CURBSIDE PICKUP:
The Town has been notified by debris contractors with Florida’s Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) that the free curbside debris removal service operating since Hurricane Ian will end on March 29. What this means for property owners is that March 1 is the last day that they can push debris off their property curbside to be picked up for free. The debris that is curbside by March 1 will be picked up sometime before March 29. This deadline DOES NOT apply for private property owners who have signed up for private property debris removal through www.iandebriscleanup.com. Sign ups are still being accepted for this service.
3) INSURANCE DEDUCTIBLE ASSISTANCE:
