|Sign structure on McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers|
Willis knows that McGregor Boulevard is a historical district and the State's Department of Transportation did *not* get permission to build the sign. Willis says, "Nothing is to be done with it without the approval of the Historical Committee or the City of Fort Myers."
|Councilman Mike Flanders|
But Willis doesn't buy it and feels D.O.T. is also to blame, "The state should have gotten the permits from the City if they wanted to do something like that, I don't think it's the contractor, they just contracted him to build it."
Flanders says Fort Myers has owned historic McGregor Boulevard for 10 years but D-O-T still thinks it belongs to them. He thinks that maybe why they didn't pull any permits, " The State has some communication problems within their own department about who owns the road and who doesn't."
'Traffic Control Devices. Inc.' was hired to build about 50 signs throughout Lee County. Four in your Corner wanted to get their side of the story but today we could only get their voicemail.We will stay on top of this one and keep you updated.
