LeeWay Extends Sanibel Temporary Service Center Operation

FORT MYERS , FL, November 5, 1997 -- LeeWay will maintain office hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Sanibel Civic Center, located at 2401 Library Way, on Wednesdays, November 12th and 19th to issue stickers to the residents of Sanibel who did not receive their LeeWay applications in the mail. The customer service representatives will issue Sanibel Causeway stickers only and the main service center will mail the transponders in the order they are received. If activity warrants, additional days may be added to the temporary service center calendar. Motorists will need to have copies of their vehicle registrations if they are seeking the multi-vehicle discount. Rental cars will need to provide the required $45 deposit on the transponder. Patrons who have mailed applications to the LeeWay Service Center should not go to the Sanibel Temporary Service Center. The applications received by mail are in process, and are not accessible for walk-in pick-up of the transponders. All applications received by mail will be distributed by mail. LeeWay staff expect it may take up to nine weeks to complete the distribution process for the anticipated 40,000 applications.
