Census Workers in neighborhoods this week
Lakeland City representatives will be conducting follow up actions on the Lakeland Special Census this week and part of next week in an attempt to increase revenue for city services by approximately $60,000 per year.
City representatives will be wearing "high visibility yellow/green" safety vests with the City of Lakeland written on the vests.
THEY WILL NOT BE SELLING OR SOLICITING ANYTHING EXCEPT THE CENSUS FORMS. PLEASE CALL CITY HALL (867-2717) IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS, INCLUDING CENSUS FORMS CONTRIBUTING TO LITTER.
City representatives will be delivering Special Census forms to homes that we show have not returned the Special Census Forms and will return the following day to pick up the Census Forms.
The City estimates that if the Special Census is complete, the City will receive about $60,000 per year more in increased revenue from the State of Tennessee. These funds will be used for streets, recreation and similar projects.
If you have your Special Census Form, please complete it and return it today! Fax it to 867-2063, mail it to City Hall, 10001 Highway 70, Lakeland, Tennessee 38002 or e-mail it to Action@Lakelandtn.org.
