Q: Lee County has information for homeowners’ association leaders. Professional property managers and residential community associations can now take steps to protect their communities in the event of a hurricane or other declared major disaster in Lee County.
FEMA regulations require that private or gated communities have a current Right of Entry and Indemnification form on file with Lee County before any disaster debris recovery crews are allowed to entry into the community. The Right of Entry would only be used as necessary during the recovery period following a declared state of local emergency. Lee County now offers a simplified process to submit the paperwork. The form is located at: http://leegis.leegov.com/ROE
. This form needs to be filled out only once a year.
Lee County Solid Waste encourages communities located in unincorporated Lee County, Bonita Springs (unincorporated areas of Bonita outside city limits only), and the Village of Estero to complete this process. (Betsy Clayton, Lee County Director of Communications)
