There’s still time for Coronation residents to have their input on governance, quality of life, rural crime, accomodations for seniors, property taxes, public participation opportunities and more.
The Town of Coronation sent out a Community Satisfaction Survey to households at the beginning of February. The deadline for submitting completed surveys is April 24. The purpose of the survey is to determine the level of satisfaction with the governance, administration, facilities, programs and financial operations of the town.
“They were looking for input from residents and local businesses to provide direction for council decision-making, policy and budget development,” said Sandra Kulyk, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of the Town of Coronation in an e-mail April 2. The town is asking that an adult from each household complete the survey.
So far, the town has received 26 completed surveys. The survey contains 15 questions under the categories of quality if life, overall satisfaction, satisfaction with town services and facilities, budget considerations and quality of communication and notifications. There is a section at the end for any additional comments. The survey is part of town council’s strategic planning process.
Its content was approved by council in January and about 400 surveys were mailed out with town utility bills in February. After the deadline, all the responses will be summarized and presented to council during its regular meeting April 29.
The information will be used to give direction to council on how best to maintain and develop the town and support its vision of being a “safe, active and affordable community … a place to live your dreams.” The survey can be found online on the town’s website or Facebook page. Completed surveys can be submitted to the town office in person, by mail, or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
