Fort Myers (FL) Officials Approve Fire Station Purchase

The Fort Myers Beach Board of Fire Commissioners has approved a contract to spend $3,992,000 on two vacant lots to build a new fire station, reports Fort Myers Beach Talk.

The department has been looking to replace Station 31 since a 2017 study showed that the station requires improvements for accessibility. Another issue is that the station is unable to house a ladder truck, which it considers important during a time of growth for the town.
