Mark Ashton was introduced to the Fort Myers Beach Town Council Monday. He’s the most recent hire made by Town Manager Andy Hyatt and is the town’s new Public Works & Utilities Director.
Aston has lived in Lee County since 1972 and calls Fort Myers Beach his happy place. He said he’s been coming to the beach since the days when the pier had lifeguards.
Ashton has worked for the City of Cape Coral, a small utility company, the Lee County Health Department and Lee County Utilities so he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position.
Ashton will be paid a salary of $115,000.
