COMMENTS AND PETITIONS

Public participation from residents, taxpayers, business owners, and utility customers is encouraged. The CRA Board welcomes information that would assist them in considering agenda items, CRA business, and otherwise fulfilling the City’s mission to make Lake Wales “a bit better or more beautiful” for its citizens.  

Anyone wishing to speak should give their name, state if they are a resident, taxpayer, business owner, or utility customer and they will have 5 minutes.  Courtesy and respect is the hallmark.  Speakers are expected to address the Board and not audience members, and not engage in back and forth discussions that can deteriorate into argument, debate and accusations.
