LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County and the City of Sanibel are hosting a town hall meeting at the Lee County Emergency Operations Center in Fort Myers at 7:00 p.m. A representative from the Army Corps of Engineers along with South Florida Water Management District will discuss the ongoing freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee basin into the Caloosahatchee river.
"People are very concerned. We're hearing it everyday in our work. They need to hear from the decision-makers. Those agencies, those decision-makers that are deciding how to operate this big system, how they're managing all the water that's flowing from Disney World to Key West and how that's impacting us and impacting other areas of the state," said Kurt Harclerode, Operations Manager for Natural Resources Division of Lee County.
The two-hour meeting is open to the public.
