CAPE CORAL, Fla.- The city of Cape Coral is considering posting "no fishing" signs along bridges at Old Burnt Store Road.
The reason is that some of homes are close to the bridges and homeowners say some fishermen leave trash behind, are loud late into the night and don't respecting those who live there.
Because of this, Cape Councilman Kevin McGrail is proposing to put up "no parking" and "no fishing" signs to five bridges along Old Burnt Store Road. Fishermen would have to ask owners' permission before they cast a line.
The "no fishing" signs would be enforced by police. McGrail said this will drastically cut down the trespassing and littering that some anglers are known to do there. He said he will encourage them to fish in other locations such as Sirenia Vista Park, or where Tropicana Parkway meets the North Spreader canal.
The signs on the bridges are expected to be posted later this month. The city will vote on the ordinance in March.
