This month's Good Morning, Lakeland! event topic will be Local Preference on August 28, 2019, 7:30 AM, at The Lakeland Regional Health Hollis Cancer Center, 3525 Lakeland Hills Blvd.
What is Local Preference? When the City seeks bids for the purchase of goods and services, a “local preference” occurs when a Lakeland business is favored over non-Lakeland businesses in the public bidding process for reasons not directly related to the bid itself, typically to support the local economy.
Join us at this event to learn how your business can benefit from Local Preference.
