PRECAUTIONARY SWIM ADVISORY

The Florida Department of Health in Lee County (DOH-Lee) has issued a county wide swim advisory for all public beaches and swimming pools due to the possible increase of waterborne illnesses. The water quality has been affected by Hurricane Ian and at this time, swimming is not recommended, nor is any contact with standing water.

TEMPORARY USE PERMIT

To expedite the rebuilding process for property and business owners, registration is available for  recreational vehicles, mobile homes, trailers, retail stores, or food trucks to be used on your property. Fill out the form at https://fortmyersbeachfl.gov/1253/Temporary-Use-Permit

HOUSEHOLD WASTE PICKUP

The landfills designated for Hurricane Ian debris cannot accept household waste. Place household waste in a trash can. Bagged material will be picked up if separated from debris. Put bagged household waste in a separate pile at the end of your driveway away from storm debris. Household waste is picked up every Thursday morning (weather dependent). Recycling began Wednesday, November 16, 2022.

FEMA PAPERWORK ASSISTANCE AND DISASTER RECOVERY CENTER (DRC)

FEMA assistance is still available. If you need help filling out paperwork, please call 1-800-621-3362 or visit DisasterAssistance.gov. An on-site DRC is at Beach Baptist Church and will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday except Thanksgiving Day.

COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTERS

The Community Resource Centers at Santini Marina Plaza at 7205 Estero Boulevard and Beach Baptist Church at 130 Connecticut Street are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Wednesday and then Friday through Sunday this week. Santini Plaza will be open on Thanksgiving Day from 9 a.m. to Noon. 

SAND REMOVAL

Sand is considered debris. However, it is a resource that the Town wants to conserve to restore beaches. Keep sand debris separate from other types of debris as you stage it. For more information visit https://www.fortmyersbeachfl.gov/1250/Hurricane-Ian-Resources.

POWER RESTORATION

Residents must have an inspection from a Florida-licensed structural engineer and a Florida-licensed electrician for power to be turned on. Email inspection reports along with the property address and the contractor’s Florida license number to buildingpermits@fmbgov.com

WATER RESTORATION

Side streets on the bay side have water utilities restored with the exception of the Red Coconut area. Gulfside water remains limited. There are no issues with the sewer system. To have water service restored to your home, contact Utilities at utilities@fmbgov.com. You MUST be present when water is restored should any issues arise.
