On December 15, 2008, the Town Council of Fort Myers Beach passed an ordinance that regulates the
usage of fertilizer by property owners and commercial operators. This ordinance will help protect the
Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay by reducing the amount of nutrients that enter the water from runoff, and
excessive or improper fertilizer application. Town staff may pursue enforcement for any persons found
violating this ordinance after June 12, 2009.
