FORT MYERS BEACH - The town manager was fired without cause Wednesday.

Terry Stewart offered his resignation to the town council which had decided to fire him without cause which he wanted.  

Stewart will receive severance pay for six months.  

Had he simply resigned or been fired with cause, he would not have received severance pay.  

Fort Myers Beach Director of Finance, Evelyn Wicks, will serve as the acting town manager until a replacement is found.  

The town council hopes to vote on an interim manager at next Tuesday's meeting.
