All Lakeland residents are invited to meet the new Lakeland Commissioners this Thursday as they take their Oath of Office at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, October 6 at Lakeland City Hall.
Mayor Carmichael is, I believe, the first Mayor to serve two terms since the election of Mayor was changed to direct election by voters from the previous method of election by the Commissioners.
Commissioners Clark Plunk and Matthew Beatty will also take their Oath of Office as Commissioners. Both completed the Leadership Lakeland program this Spring, as part of the first graduating Leadership Lakeland class.
The BOC Regular Meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. after the Oath of Office ceremony. There will be a reception lasting after the Oath of Office until the start of the Regular Meeting to provide time for visiting and greeting.
