The February 2018 session will feature an update on key projects including the new 10-acre Mirrorton Development, Se7en Wetland Park, and Dog Leg Woods (Dog Park) before opening the floor for audience 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 Hole in One Donuts. 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.
Why Tony Talks?
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.” He added, “If you aren’t following the City already, please like us on all of our social media platforms.”
