FORT MYERS, Fla. - Local watchdogs are keeping an eye on talk of closing a popular boat ramp in downtown Fort Myers.
They've sent postcards warning boaters and other taxpayers to keep a close eye on what the city does with the boat ramp on Edwards Drive.
The city says its a very real possibility the boat ramp could be shut down, at least temporarily, for about a year. During that time it would be used as a staging ground to build a new hotel.
But city leaders insist that they would not permanently shut down the boat ramp until a new one in a better location is built.
