Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis approved $15 million from the state’s 2025 fiscal budget for Fort Myers Beach on Wednesday.

The Town of Fort Myers Beach announced that $8 million of the budget will be used to acquire 6231 Estero Blvd., to be used as the new Town Hall, and $7,547,805 for revenue replacement.

Fort Myers Beach Mayor Dan Allers stated his gratitude for the budget allotment from the state.

“I would like to thank Governor DeSantis, FDEM Director Kevin Guthrie, Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, Senator Jonathan Martin, State Representative Adam Botana, the entire State Legislature, the entire Lee County delegation, and Lobbyist Ron Book and his staff, Rona Brown, Kelly Mallette, and Gaby Navarro for their continued support in our recovery from Hurricane Ian. I would also like to thank Town staff in their efforts in helping to make this a reality as we continue our rebuild,” said Allers.
