Mayor Responds to FMB BusinessesAt last week’s public town hall meeting organized by Al Durrett and Bud Nocera, I promised I would get back to you within a week to let you know what steps had been taken to make doing business on Fort Myers Beach easier during the road construction. I am happy to report progress has been made. The credit for this goes to Commissioner Larry Kiker. He went to bat for us and the results show he was indeed listening.
