Raydunavant, you are correct, fixed. I apologize for not catching that on the read-through.

Refreshing to see that this Mayor + council admitted to NOT making the correct decision pertaining to the seawalls and corrected it in a timely manner. Perhaps there is a glimmer of hope for current council. Let's see how they vote on the extended bar hours that CM Carioscia is hell-bent on passing A/K/A (ramming down our throats), regardless of safety concerns and the cost of extra police presents. I guess he owes it to The Dixie Roadhouse for the generous donations they gave him for his reelection campaign. Let's see how the rest of council feels about hiring of more police officers in order to handle/maintain the drunks in the CRA district. What happened to safety first???? The citizens have voted it down twice already! Will the 3rd time be a charm or can we expect it to resurface again??? What a shame that Carioscia can NOT accept the will of the taxpayers of Cape Coral. He will NOT be missed when his term finishes in 2019. Can't come soon enough!

QUOTE "It was thought by all the contractors that it would be carte' blanch approval for all methods currently in use." -- Unfortunately, as usual, our council believe that they know what was best for the citizens of Cape Coral. It appears that nothing has changed, even with a new Mayor & council. They enjoy calling the shots!

All council members were briefed on all variations of seawall repair well in advance of the Feb 12th decision. It was thought by all the contractors that it would be carte' blanch approval for all methods currently in use. The council INEPTLY disregarded the professionals and limited the method types of repair to the astonishment of all of the professionals involved. Now the outrage of citizens and industry professionals has demanded a second appraisal by the Council. Let us hope the Council concedes to the professionals and the citizens.

Either way, all methods meet or exceed engineering standards with the two vinyl options actually having projected lifespans that can exceed that of traditional poured concrete.

This statement should say "Precast" instead of "Poured". Current Design Standards call for precast panels.

Perhaps someone who knows what they are talking about should write the editorials!
