CAPE CORAL, Fla.- The Cape Coral City Council is voting on fence rules for people living along a canal.

Right now, if you live along the canal you are only allowed to have a fence that is three feet high. If the fence goes any higher it must be made of mesh, as to not obstruct the view of the water. Fences also must be twenty feet away from the seawall.

But, today's vote could allow full fences, just seven feet away from the seawall to be built. the vote takes place at 9am today.
