CHARTER: The new group of city commissioners agree with their predecessors that Lakeland voters should get a chance to vote on changes to the City Charter recommended by a review committee — but without two provisions involving Lakeland Electric and term limits. But they disagreed Tuesday with the timing of the vote; rather than holding an April special election costing $63k, they decided to wait until the next city election, which is set for November 2019.

INCENTIVES: The Lakeland Economic Development Council’s Steve Scruggs pressed city commissioners Tuesday for two new local incentives to lure businesses that pay average wages of at least $46k. (Scruggs also makes the case for the incentives on the LEDC blog.)
