Straight From The Mayor: The next chapter in the Ceitus Barrier battle

Straight From The Mayor: What's ahead for 2013?

As I write my final column for 2012, one has to feel or think where did the year go?

The economy in the city of Cape Coral is beginning to look a little brighter than what it was last year. We are seeing more permits for construction than we have in some time. Hopefully, the real estate market and local economy has bottomed out, and we are beginning to climb our way back. It is always good to end the year on a high note.
