Staff will focus on the backlogged permits to aid the growing frustration in Southwest Florida’s largest city closing the office every Friday starting next week.

While some are optimistic others fear another total pause in Cape Coral, like what happened in April. But, as of Friday, the city said that is not under consideration.

Lines are out the door before City Hall opens and permits are not slowing down. This is causing considerable frustration for homeowners and contractors.
