No Lodging Reservations In Ft Myers Beach For 90 Days
Fort Myers Beach Mayor Anita Cereceda said it was necessary for the town to adopt its own version for prohibiting rentals in the foreseeable future.
“We felt it was essential because as one community shifts, another community is effected,” Cereceda said during a virtual council meeting held Monday.
Council members voted to cancel stays for the next 90 days at hotels, motels, timeshares and any other place of public accommodation that provides lodging to transient guests.
For now, hotels and other lodging providers will be able to take reservations when those 90 days are up. But, the council said the prohibition period will remain fluid as long as the town remains under a state of emergency.
