Chief Love Honored By The State


Every year the Florida Association of Special Districts recognizes one district manager which meets the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and  transparent governmental services to the citizens in the State of Florida. Fort Myers Beach Fire Chief  Matt Love has been chosen and awarded the FASD District Manager of the Year  award for 2020.

 The FASD was formed in 1979 with the  purpose of strengthening special purpose governments in the state of Florida through the legislative process, education, and exchange of ideas between partners. The FASD represents over 1,700 independent and dependent special districts. This includes water control districts, community development districts, hospital districts, road and utility districts, port and inlet control districts, mosquito control districts, fire control districts and  many more. Essentially, most government entities that are not overseen by a city or other  municipality are special districts.
