Advisory Committee Seats Open


It’s time for appointments to the Town’s Advisory Committees and Boards. At the October 3, 2016 Town Council meeting, council members will consider appointments to the Town’s eight advisory groups. Most seats are for a two-year appointment, but there are no term limits, so current members whose term expires in October may ask to be reappointed. With 27 advisory seats, there are many opportunities to participate. The Advisory Boards consist of:

Anchorage Advisory Committee

Audit Committee

Bay Oaks Recreational Campus Advisory Board

Community Resource Advisory Board

Cultural & Environmental Learning Center Advisory Board

Local Planning Agency

Marine Resources Task Force

Public Safety Committee

Current members whose term is expiring and who wish to apply for reappointment are asked to submit a letter of interest by September 1st. Islanders not currently on an advisory board, who would like to apply for a seat on a board are asked to submit a letter of interest with a brief summary of qualifications and a little about yourself by September 21st. Indicate what group you wish to serve with.

Send letters of interest to Fort Myers Beach Town Council, in care of the Town Clerk, 2525 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931 or email to For more information visit or inquire at the Town Clerk’s office,
