— Following mixed reviews by City Council in February, the City of Marco Island Arts Advisory Committee is meeting at 8 a.m. on Tuesday in the first floor conference room of City Hall, 50 Bald Eagle Dr., to discuss potential revisions to a proposed public arts ordinance. The ordinance, as currently drafted, would require property owners, including government, business and other non-residential property developers, to pay a fee of $1 per square foot on large improvements and new construction to go toward purchasing art to be displayed in public places on Island.
