Cape Coral residents who overpaid for utility expansion projects can expect to see refunds next month. Mayor Eric Feichthaler says costs for the installation of water, sewer and irrigation lines were cheaper than expected -- and residents should have received money back years ago. The refunds follow several audits that were critical of Cape Coral. Speaking on W-G-C-U’s Gulf Coast Live, Mayor Feichthaler said he’s trying to make sure that doesn’t happen again.
“Rather than blame and point fingers, we have to move forward and find ways to ensure that when we do have audits and we have outside views of these types of things, we have very good controls in place where there is no doubt about being fully cooperative, getting out information as quickly as possible and to make sure this lack of communication that we’ve seen never happens again.”
