Hurricane Irma threw a monkey wrench into the meeting schedule at Sanibel City Hall. As the city goes about clearing the vegetation and restoring key services, it's getting its meetings sorted out too.

Sanibel City Council will meet in its regular monthly meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3. It will return at 5 p.m. that day for its first mandated budget hearing. Two days later on Oct. 5, the council will hold its final budget hearing at 5 p.m.

The council was to have held its September meeting and its first budget hearing on Sept. 11 with the final budget hearing on Monday, Sept. 25. Instead the council found itself holding emergency hurricane meetings on Sept. 6 and Sept. 7 ahead of Irma, and the city has been absorbed in hurricane recovery since.

The Sept. 12 meeting of the Planning Commission was also scuttled by Irma. The Planning Commission will meet Tuesday, Sept. 26. A public hearing will be held for height limits for buildings regarding pitched roofs in the Resort Housing District and articulation of facades. The same hearing was on the agenda for Sept. 12.

The City Council's October agenda isn't out yet, but it is expected to include new matters and agenda items carried over from what would have been a very busy September meeting. Some of the September matters may not be carried over.

Major items on the September agenda were formula retail stores regulations, increases in beach parking and Recreation Center fees, sewer rates, approval of three labor agreements, water quality report, selection of the Charter Review Committee and approval of a lease agreement with BIG ARTS.
