City to announce decision soon on hurricane passes
The hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin (Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico) is June 1 to Nov. 30. A storm can occur anytime, however, the busiest period is mid-August to mid-October. The city of Sanibel makes an independent decision each year whether to re-use passes or start issuing a new pass series. When that decision is made, there will be an announcement. Until then, residents and businesses should keep their 2016 pass. For information, visit mysanibel.com/emergency-management.
