Our friends at Turtle Time have updated the latest Fort Myers Beach turtle stats: There are now 32 remaining nests to hatch compared to last weeks 46. There have not been any false crawls since the beginning of August.
(By Fire Chief Matt Love) It's that time of year again in our community, not spring break, not tourist season, but Hurricane Season! Whether you're a permanent or seasonal resident, new or old, hurricane season is kind of a big deal especially for our beach community.
It's not what you think. It's another lawyer the hotel has hired to try to salvage its reputation...and stop the Fort Myers Beach town council from passing an ordinance that would create a Nuisance Abatement Board. Meet attorney Ellyn Bogdanoff.
A draft ordinance to create one has come before the council once and will come up again for discussion next month. The City of Cape Coral has an NAB. This Saturday on Beach Talk Radio, Cape Coral Councilwoman Jennifer Nelson joins us to discuss why she worked toward approving the Nuisance Abatement board for her city.

Our friends at Turtle Time have updated the latest Fort Myers Beach turtle stats: There are now 46 remaining nests to hatch compared to last weeks 58. There have not been any additional false crawls to report so they remain at 144.
By a vote of 3-2 the Fort Myers Beach town council voted to reject an offer made by Estero Boulevard homeowners Eddie Rood and Kurt Kroemer. The homeowners are seeking a special exception for a long walkway that would give them access to the beach behind their homes. They now plan to sue the town.
It appears the Fort Myers Beach Town Council is moving forward with approving an ordinance that would create a Nuisance Abatement Board. The board is being created to help the community deal with public safety issues on the island. Councilman Jim Atterholt calls it "another tool in the toolbox."
