LAKELAND, Tennessee (May 5, 2022) – The City of Lakeland announces a new platform/app called Lakeland Connect, powered by a partnership with SeeClickFix, that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life concerns and request Lakeland services. 

 

With the free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Lakeland citizens will now be able to submit photos, specific descriptions, and other valuable information into this centralized issue management system for City of Lakeland staff to address citizen concerns efficiently.

 

“Lakeland Connect and the SeeClickFix mobile app provides another opportunity for citizens to engage with their City to report quality-of-life issues directly. This platform assists staff in addressing a critical Board of Commissioners priority in providing proactive communications with citizens,” said Lakeland City Manager, Shane Horn. 

 

The Lakeland Connect application, powered by SeeClickFix, is a user-friendly communication tool that will let City staff know, in real time, when there are quality-of-life items and service requests that need our immediate attention, and to track our progress when addressing issues,” says Shane Horn, City Manager.

 

Lakeland citizens can report problems and view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. They can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests, not just the ones they report.


 

The Lakeland Connect mobile app is now available for download on Android and iPhone.


In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports via Lakeland's SeeClickFix.com.


Information on the City website: LakelandTN.gov/LakelandConnect or LakelandTN.gov/SeeClickFix.


You can find instructions for the SeeClickFix mobile app or desktop sign-up process here.
