Yesterday I received a letter from Fort Myers Beach regarding a parking meter citation that went unpaid. The incident occurred in June 2014. The letter was dated December 12, 2016. I no longer live in SWFL, and I haven’t for over two years. But thirty months after the fact, and two weeks before Christmas, I’m getting a letter demanding I pay or face legal action. Merry Christmas to you too, FMB. I’ll write the check, but I guess I know where Scrooge retired.
