FORT MYERS, Fla.- The Housing Authority of the City of Fort Myers will pause for more research and community discussion regarding a controversial Trespass Policy. The policy, which carries full support of the Mayor of Fort Myers and most of City Council, brought the ire of the ACLU and other city leaders. The claim from the opposition is that the policy was too broad in its scope and would not be legally enforceable.
Marcus Goodson, the executive director of the housing authority says there are many misconceptions about the policy. Goodson claims the policy does nothing more than put in writing the authority the Fort Myers police and Sheriff's deputies already have to trespass individuals on Housing Authority property.
