Don't get too confused, This is right in the city and they are pissed
at people who want to keep their well and septic after they put in
city water and sewer. If she is willing to pay the water and sewer
tax, I imagine they would leave her alone. although water management
and the DEP is trying to get rid of private wells and septic tanks

I don't think this woman had a well, it says in a story that she was
using rainwater for domestic usage. That is probably where the problem
starts, because she doesn't have either a proper well or city water.
So, code probably says you have to have an approved potable water
source for a CO and that's where the big trouble starts. It also
said the city wasn't even aware of her, until she started telling
her story to the press.
That area of the cape was on well water before the city brought in
piped water and sewer. Depending on where she is they may also want to
charge her for "Purple" water (recycled for irrigation).
This is not out in the country, it has been platted for regular 1/4
1/3 and 1/2 acre home sites since the Eisenhower administration and
the City of Cape Coral has had HOA level ordinances for most of that
time. (no boats, no trucks, no shoes on the porch etc) She knew what
she was getting into when she moved there.
If they were screwing with someone out in the Corkscrew or up in the
wilds of North Ft Myers, I would have more sympathy for them but
nobody is screwing with those folks.
First, you have to understand the cape. They have had HOA level
ordinances for 60 years and this woman has been sued out of her home
twice for not paying her sewer bill. People live there because they
think that is the way things should be. Why would anyone think 3d time
was the charm. She is 5 miles away from places where water and sewer
are not even an option and AG zoning is common where there are no
rules. She is just nuts and I blame the people who are supporting her.
I'm currently on a 100' well. The municipal water line passes in front of my house.
I was quoted a $5800 tap fee by the local government thugs.
Horizontal boring under road and trenching 120' to my house was $2400 additional. Fuck that!

No, as has happened twice before, lawyers kill you ... or at least
make you move along. I didn't look at the 2009 house but she doubled
her money on the 2002 house in a little over 2 years. (minus the
She may be nuts but she isn't stupid.
