LAKELAND, FL (WFLA) -

If you live in Lakeland, here's your chance to let city leaders know what kind of services and programs the city should offer.

The city has created an special online survey for citizens to give their input.

Lakeland city leaders will use your feedback in two strategic planning workshops that commissioners and other city officials will attend.

Citizens are also invited to attend the workshops.

The first workshop will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. Feb. 19 at the Tiger Town Administrative Building. A continental breakfast will be served. Call (863) 834-SWAN to RSVP.

The second workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Feb. 20. The community can participate in three ways; in person at City Hall Commission Chambers, online via webcast by logging onto www.lakelandvalues.com

Those who complete the survey will also be eligible for prizes including a golf package at Cleveland Heights, tickets to a Lakeland Center event, or passes to the Kelly Recreational Complex/Gandy Pool.

You can fill out the survey now until Feb. 24. It is also available in Spanish. Just go to this link: www.lakelandvalues.com

    James Woolever was shocked to find a bad mark on his credit report. Especially since it was for an "outstanding balance" from a Verizon account opened in 1979. He knew that couldn't be right, because he was just 6 years old then.
