Lehigh Acres Goes to Polls for Fire District Property Assessment Revision – Special Election Called for June 4
Lehigh Fire District Referendum
At this writing a special election has been called by the Board of Commissioners of the Lehigh Acres Fire and Rescue Control District regarding a revision of the District’s assessment of properties within the confines of the District – Lehigh Acres. I have included for your review a copy of the District’s notice to residents on the situation the Fire District finds itself and the reasoning for going to a two-tiered system that addresses vacant lots. No doubt this may have aroused your interest and I encourage you to tale a look at the enclosed release in this edition.
Please take a look at www.lehighfd.com for further materials provided on the District website.
Getting Prepared for Storm Season
June 2019 is the official kick off of Hurricane Season for Florida. Lehigh residents know full well from Hurricane Irma that preparation starts early. Tami Baker and Katy Hoover of L.A. Insurance have provided an article on making sure homeowners are ready and prepared NOW for the 2019 season. There were several unfortunate stories to hear of residents that simply were not upto date with their property insurance needs. Give Tami and Katy a call at 239-369-6000.
On Tuesday April 30th the Chamber of Commerce will hold its monthly luncheon at the new Casa Lupita, 13120 Westlinks Terrace #10, Fort Myers (Gateway) 33913. The keynote speaker will be Mr. David Kirk, American Red Cross regarding our community’s process of prevention, preparation, response and recovery – a relevant topic as we prepare for Hurricane Season.
Please see www.lehighacreschamber.org – front page “Let’s Do Lunch” for reservation. This will be a buffet luncheon.
