Meet with City Manager Tony Delgado to Discuss Issues & Concerns
City Manager Tony Delgado will host his first Tony Talks on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 in the lobby at City Hall from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM. These informal meetings are a great opportunity for our citizens to get to know City Administration and speak directly to the City Manager about subjects that matter to them. Departmental staff will be available as well to help answer questions.
The first session will start with an update on some key projects and upcoming initiatives as well as a very high-level overview of the upcoming Fiscal Year 2018 budget before answering questions.
Tony Talks is also a networking opportunity for businesses, community organizations, citizens and newcomers to the area to learn about their local government including upcoming projects and initiatives. City Manager Tony Delgado said, “I look forward to a very relaxed way to share information about what we are doing as a City. This is also an opportunity for me to learn about issues and concerns from our residents on what is impacting them.”
The event’s refreshments will be offered by Mitchell’s Coffee House and a local baker. City Hall is located at 228 South Massachusetts Avenue, Lakeland, FL. The refreshments are free to the public and will be offered as a first come, first served basis.
Director of Communications Kevin Cook said, “The City provides a number of communication tools to help get information to our residents but most of those opportunities are digital like our website, social media and live meeting coverage. An informal session over coffee brings a genuine element to the mix with the sharing of ideas through face-to-face conversation.”
