Fort Myers Beach advisory committees have openings

By Staff | Sep 4, 2020

The Town of Fort Myers Beach has a number of openings on its advisory committees. The town council appoints members to the advisory committees for two-year terms. The council will be making a new round of appointments in October.

The deadline for applying to the town council for the volunteer positions is Sept. 18. The committees advise the town council on a host of issues and sometimes vote on advisory opinions.

For example, the town’s Local Planning Agency made rulings on the proposed dune/lagoon walkover which the town council opposed. The council is currently weighing options on overhauling its Bay Oaks Recreational Campus based on suggestions by the Bay Oaks Recreational Campus Advisory Board.

The town’s advisory committees and openings are as follows:

Anchorage Advisory Committee: four seats which expire in October and one vacant seat

Audit Committee: three seats which expire in October

Bay Oaks Recreational Campus Advisory Board: three seats which expire in October; one vacant seat

Community Resource Advisory Board: two seats currently held expiring in October; three vacant seats

Cultural and Environmental Learning Center Advisory Board (CELCAB): four seats expiring in October

Local Planning Agency (also the town’s historic preservation board): three seats expiring in October; one vacant seat

Marine Resources Task Force: four seats expiring in October

Public Safety Committee: three seats expiring in October; one vacant seat

Each of the committees meet monthly, except CELCAB which meets quarterly.

To be considered, interested residents need to fill out and return an application, which can be found online, by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 18 to the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall, 2525 Estero Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach, 33931.
