The Fort Myers Beach Town Council is moving forward with hiring lighting consultant REDD Inc. out of Scottsdale, Arizona to develop a plan for lights on Estero Boulevard. The funding, which has a cap of $185,000, will have to come out of the town’s reserves as the item was not budgeted for.
The Town received three qualified consultant submissions. The three firms that were considered were: TrebiLcock Consulting Solutions, PA, REDD Inc, DBA Town Lighting Engineers and A.D.A. Engineering.
After interviewing the three firms Town Lighting Engineers ranked the highest.
Town Lighting Engineers has experience with turtle-friendly lighting in Stuart, Juno Beach, Pennsacola and Bradenton.
