Purchase during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Town Hall's address is 2525 Estero Boulevard

REMEMBER: When using a flashlight on the beach during turtle season, it needs to be a turtle safe light like the one in the picture.  No cell phone flashlights, please! They can disorient mama turtles from nesting properly, and baby hatchlings from getting safely to the Gulf.
