[ARCHIVED] From the Town Manager: Friday, August 3, 2018

Currently there are still algae and fish washing up on Fort Myers Beach shoreline. In addition to the beach shoreline, cleaning efforts are also underway by 4 crews in the back bay -  Matanzas Pass Bridge to Bowditch Point and from Publix to FishTail Marina is currently in progress. Associated debris has been piled for disposal via daily dumpster hauling with a pile located in front of Bayview Avenue and Wyndham Gardens remaining. All other areas will  continue to be cleaned every day until the daily landings of fish and algae cease coming ashore.  Lee County is responsible for cleaning the beach from the pier northward to Bowditch Park.

The Town’s contractor continues to monitor the beach and watch levels of algae and fish coming up on the beach. Beach cleaning activities will be updated as the debris influx changes with each tide. On Saturday, crews will be working from 8:00am-6:00pm handpicking the beach. On Sunday, crews will be working 9:00am-5:00pm.

With the start of the new school year quickly approaching, the Town of Fort Myers Beach wants everyone to enjoy the upcoming weekend by visiting Fort Myers Beach and supporting our local businesses so the Town is offering FREE PARKING at our pay stations and parking meters from 4 pm Friday, August 3rd, 2018 starting until 9 am on Monday August 6th, 2018.
