Commissioner Matthew Beatty recently announced he will be resigning from the Board of Commissioners since he will be moving out of Lakeland.
The Board of Commissioners select a replacement for vacancies on the Board of Commissioners. If a selection is not made within 90 days, than an election is required.
Applications will be available on the City web sites, CityofLakeland.com and Lakelandtn.gov or at City Hall.
Applications must be submitted by April 14, 2006. The Board of Commissioners currently plan to interview all qualified applicants for the vacancy in order to insure that all interested persons are considered.
Applicants for the vacancy on the Board of Commissioners must be a Lakeland resident and a "qualified voter", which I understand means a registered voter.
