Another question concerned AT&T on
the cell tower. Although AT&T promised
to have their dish mounted on the tower
by year end 2015, that did not happen
and they have stopped responding.
Ruane is now encouraging residents
and groups on the island to bombard
AT&T with phone, text and e-mail
messages. The person to contact is
Maria Johnston, Regional Director,
External Affairs at AT&T. Her phone
number is 305-347-5481; mobile 305-
582-9475; e-mail mariajohnston@att.
The financial impact of the Sanibel
Recreation Center was questioned. The
mayor responded that voters approved
an $8.3 million bond to build a new
Rec Center; that bond has been paid
down to $5.8 million. The annual
cost of the old recreation center was
$1.3 million a year which is the same
amount in the current budget. To
achieve this, fees at the center have
been modestly increased.
In response to requests from CASI,
Ruane has examined and supports
extending permission for permeable
pavers to more properties, noting that
pavers add ambiance and value to
properties. Staff has been directed to
re-formulate the ordinance adopted 18
months ago for single family homes so
that council can consider extending this
benefit to multi-family and commercial
The audience thanked the mayor
and his wife, Doreen, for their service
and sacrifice to the city, its residents

Snyder told those gathered that the
