FORT MYERS, Fla.- One city council member suggests tearing down the Harborside Event Center, and building a better place.

Councilman Tom Leonardo says it's wrong to pour millions of dollars into the current building, which never will be satisfactory for medium-sized business conventions. He suggests building a bigger and more modern facility, that could cost at least $30 million, but he admits, he doesn't know where that money would come from.
