The City of Lakeland is launching an on-line survey to get input from residents about priorities and values for the city's future.
City spokesman Kevin Cook says the survey only takes about five to 10 minutes to take and is a valuable resource for decision makers.
"We're asking for citizen input so it will help us in part of our budgeting and strategic planning process," Cook said.
City officials begin discussing budget issues in the spring and finalize that budget in September.
The on-line survey as well as a series of community meetings will give residents the chance to voice their opinions about which services, programs and facilities are worth their money.
"Are we doing a good job," Cook asked. "Where would they like to see us invest money in."
Residents can take the survey at www.lakelandvalues.com.
Community workshops will take place February 25th at 6 p.m. at the Kelly Recreation Complex, February 26th at 6 p.m. at the Coleman Bush Building, February 27th at 12 p.m. at the Magnolia Building and March 2nd at 9 a.m. at the Kelly Recreation Complex.
