The sites will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Monday at 5901 Strickland Ave. in Lakeland, on the west side of the road at the ball park; and Mt. Tabor Road in Lakeland, at the intersection of North Galloway Road and Mt. Tabor Road in the northwest corner of the intersection. This is across the street from 3008 Mt. Tabor Road.

These sites will be limited to Polk County residents only and staff members will be checking identification to confirm and document their address.
