Residents of Opotiki district are being asked for their opinions on a variety of Council services and issues. The Community Satisfaction Survey is part of the Council's continuing commitment to actively seek public opinion and involvement and is undertaken in February every year.
"We have a responsibility to track how well our efforts are carrying through to our residents," says Opotiki District Council Finance and Corporate Services Manager Bevan Gray.
"The best way to do this is to interview a representative cross-section of residents, and to have this done by an independent professional group to ensure impartiality."
National Research Bureau, an independent research company that provides specialised services to local authorities throughout New Zealand, has been commissioned to undertake the survey and report its findings to the Council.
People living in all three wards of the Opotiki district will be telephoned using a randomised selection method and asked their opinions on a wide range of services and issues pertaining to the Council, and the services it delivers to the residents of the district.
The survey results will form part of the results for the 2017/18 Annual Report to 30 June.
The survey starts on Friday 2 February and is expected to be completed on Wednesday 14 February.
If you have questions about the survey please contact Council's Business Innovation and Communications Advisor by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Council on 07 3153030.
