Hurricane Prep 101, Town Leaders Plan For Worst

“I sat in a back corner of a room a lot like this in 1992, when I worked for Miami-Dade County,” related Roger Hernstadt, the new Town Manager for Fort Myers Beach to local emergency personnel in Town Hall on Monday afternoon, June 19. “It was another hurricane preparedness seminar, I had been to a bunch of them, and I thought, “Here we go again,’ half paying attention and half thinking about all the work on my desk that wasn’t getting done. Then in August, Hurricane Andrew hit! You can’t describe the massive damage unless you see it first-hand; until you cannot recognize the street you live on or your house. We must prepare for the worst-case scenario and make sure we have a plan for when everything is total chaos.” Click here for the FULL ARTICLE

Millage, Employees, Stormwater, Parking
Council Tackles Tough Topics
The Town of Fort Myers Beach Council covered a broad spectrum of tough topics Monday morning, June 19 at its final meeting before their summer break.
Perhaps the most controversial may have ramifications during its 2017-2018 Budget deliberations, with new Town Manager Roger Hernstadt recommending a 0.9 Tentative Millage Rate that would increase the Town’s current 0.8 mark. “Since joining the Town on April 25, I’ve spent a tremendous amount of time analyzing the budget and assessing the staff to address budget priorities and viable options,” he explained. “I believe 0.9 is the right millage for the Town…I look at the potential to maintain our current level of service, with operational efficiencies.”  Click here for the FULL ARTICLE
