Fort Myers Fire Chief Tracy McMillion started the city’s Hurricane Ian update Monday night by explaining the city’s progress and the steps it will take moving forward.  

Regarding Federal Emergency Management Agency recovery, the city submitted the letters of request for commercial and private property debris removal and is waiting for a response before work can begin. The city also submitted its expedited category A project, debris removal, and its category B project, emergency protective measures, on Nov. 1.  

“We’re really hopeful”, McMillion said. “Kristy Mathews, our emergency manager, has been talking a lot with FEMA, working with the state to get some good feedback on that. Everything seems very positive for the document that we actually submitted.”
