I noticed the Manager of the Lakeland Walgreens, Mark Lehner, and another Walgreens employee out picking up litter on their parking lot early one windy, cool, morning. This was just after receiving an e-mail from a resident concerned about Lakeland businesses that don't pick up litter on their property or take care of their property.
We appreciate the many businesses like the Lakeland Walgreens that put a lot of effort into taking care of their property and supporting Lakeland's efforts at beautification.
The Lakeland Natural Resources Board is starting a beautification program that will include a litter control element.
We urge Lakeland residents to support Lakeland businesses, especially those businesses who make special efforts to support Lakeland.
