City invites residents to comment on municipal services
August 21, 2015 / For Immediate Release
AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – Airdrie citizens are invited to complete an online survey to share their opinions, thoughts and ideas about city services and our community. The Look Closer survey, available at http://fluidsurveys.com/s/lookcloser/, is intended to complement the other methods of public engagement the City participates in, Council meetings, open forums, the Community Needs Assessment and Citizen Satisfaction Survey.
“As part of the 2016 budget delivery process, we are providing Council with the feedback received through this engagement survey” says Wiwcharuk “We will be presenting the data collected at the fall Council Budget Committee meeting. The meetings are open to the public and posted on our website at airdrie.ca/LookCloser”
“As a council, we value input from residents, and actively look for more opportunities for citizen voices to be heard. The feedback from this survey, and from other forms of citizen engagement, will be taken into consideration over the course of 2016 budget deliberation,” says Deputy Mayor Candice Kolson.
The survey consists of 11 questions, including:
If you could improve one service provided by the City, recognizing that it could increase taxes, what would it be?
What, in your opinion, is the single most important local problem facing Airdrie today?
What is the most important thing that your municipal government does for you?
The survey ends Friday, September 25, 2015.
Lucy Wiwcharuk, Director of Corporate Services
