Town council makes it official: Stewart new Fort Myers Beach manager
Former Cape Coral Manager Terry Stewart became the town manager of Fort Myers Beach Monday. The Fort Myers Beach Town Council’s top choice among four candidates made it formal when he signed the official employee agreement contract and unanimously received the approval of the council at a regular public meeting in town hall.
According to town documents, Stewart agreed to accept a base salary of $100,000. The total annual compensation package of salary and benefits is approximately $145,654, excluding mandatory FICA payments on his behalf. Terms of the employee agreement include a stipulation that there would be a probationary period (interim status) followed by a performance evaluation by the council within seven months.
“I’d like to say to the mayor, council and town residents and business people of Fort Myers Beach that I am very much looking forward to working for you and with you,” said Stewart. “One of the things that I like to do is to become part of the community that I’m involved with. I’m exciting about learning more about Fort Myers Beach and to getting to know all of you.”
