CAPE CORAL, Fla.- It's your money and right now, a fourth and final vote is underway to bring city water and sewer to parts of Cape Coral. The controversy surrounding this project is the cost to homeowners, and it's those homeowners who have shown up in masses tonight.
There are more than 70 people so far inside City Hall. Many people WINK News spoke with are there for the first time, and are wondering how they are going to pay for this.
The meeting started at roughly 4:30 p.m. This is the final vote for the Southwest 6 and 7. That affects more than 6,000 properties. Some residents believe it's progress to hook the homes up to city sewer water and irrigation. Others believe it's just too expensive, costing an average of more than $15,000 to $24,000 depending on your payment plan.
If this vote is approved tonight, and you live in the affected area, you can start paying for this project as soon as tomorrow. Shovels should be in the ground by next month.
