The October Estero Spotlight Magazine endorsed the incorporation of Estero in an editorial, stating, “Municipal incorporation is the only way to provide long-term certainty and definition as to the geographic contours of Estero. And, it will ensure that virtually all significant decisions affecting the quality of life will be made locally by an elected village board.” (Click here to read the entire editorial.)
Estero Lifestyle magazine also carried an extensive article about the incorporation effort in their October edition – see Page 22. (Click here to read.)
The Vote by Mail ballots have been mailed out. Please note, the vote pertaining to the incorporation of Estero is the last item on the second page. It very simply asks “Shall the Village of Estero and its charter be created?”
Early Voting starts on October 20 and goes through November 1, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Election Day, November 4, the polls are open 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
