09.18.17 Town Manager Update

September 18, 2017
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

From Roger Hernstadt, Fort Myers Beach Town Manager:

The curfew that was implemented post-Irma has been lifted. No areas of Lee County are under a curfew now.?

FPL: there are 27,000 crew members statewide working on this project. The largest number on record. We have emailed FPL asking for more crews on FMB.

Comfort station made available at Newton and BORC.

There are 2 sites for debris. Everyone should be on regular schedule for pick up by now. Next week the 'bagged horticulture' pickup will begin.

We are planning our start of FEMA waste removal. Depending on the contractors availability, we could start as early as Monday on the North end of the Island. Other debris items (per FMB-FRD):

Keep high piled debris at least ten (10) feet from all structures

Never attempt to burn debris in residential neighborhoods; this can cause a large fire that can easily spread to neighboring homes.

Be careful with smoking material; never discard lit cigarettes, or allow anyone to discard lit smoking material into debris piles.

Operation Blue Roof provides no-cost temporary repairs for roofs damaged by Hurricane Irma.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractors will install the temporary roof covering at NO COST TO YOU.

Only primary residences with standard shingled roofs are eligible for the program.

Metal roofs and mobile homes will be repaired as practical on a case by case basis.

Roofs with greater than 50 percent structural damage are not eligible.

To get assistance, you must sign a "Right of Entry" (ROE) form to allow Corps staff and contractors to access your private property and assess roof damage.

Complete an ROE form at a site near you.

Call 888-ROOF-BLU (888-766-3258)

The EOC is now at a Activation level 2

DOH says they only have 19 in special needs shelter
