Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is asking residents to provide feedback on its programs and services through a Citizen Survey, issued every two years to gauge public satisfaction and help guide future municipal program planning and investment.
Beginning today until Friday, Dec. 19, Halifax residents will have the opportunity to rate their satisfaction with municipal programs and services, including: waste collection; parking; recreation; safety; infrastructure; transportation; environment; and, other key issues impacting their community.
Approximately 12,000 randomly selected residents will receive invitations by mail to participate in the Citizen Survey online, in written form, or by telephone. MQO Research, a local independent market research firm, is conducting the survey for invited residents and will collect and manage their responses.
Residents that do not receive an invitation by mail can still have their say by completing the survey online athttp://fluidsurveys.com/s/2014CitizenSurvey.
Resident feedback received from the survey is important as it helps guide strategic policy decisions, measures performance and assists Regional Council in planning and allocating resources for future budget years.
Final survey results and assessments will be shared at a later date on www.halifax.ca. Click here to view results from the last Citizen Survey, conducted in 2012.
