Edison restaurant management at issue with Fort Myers city council

Owners of two well-known and well-established restaurants in Fort Myers are in a battle over which will operate the venerable Edison restaurant at the Fort Myers Country Club.

A recommendation from City Manager Marty Lawing that the restaurant be turned over to the owners of The Standard restaurant was thrown out by the city council.

Lawing recommended the owners of The Standard restaurant over what at the time seemed to be the current operator of the Edison. The Standard finished first on a matrix scoring process used by a committee of city officials appointed by Lawing to screen the applicants for the job.
