Citizens who did not participate in telephone survey may want to complete online survey by Friday, March 9
The City of Kirkland conducts a community opinion survey every two years to gauge citizen satisfaction with the level and quality of services provided. In mid-February a random selection of Kirkland citizens were contacted through landlines and cellular phone numbers and asked to participate by answering questions regarding the importance and satisfaction with certain services such as public safety, street maintenance, and parks and recreation. For the telephone survey, the City Council contracted with EMC Research to contact up to 500 Kirkland registered voters.
As an additional means to gather feedback from more citizens, the opinion survey is now available online for those who did not participate in the telephone survey. Please complete the entire survey before exiting the website. Only take the survey once (multiple entries will not be accepted). The online survey should take about five minutes to complete.
Online survey results are not statistically valid but will give the City Council further feedback to consider as it begins its 2013-2014 Budget adoption process. Data from the telephone and online surveys will be presented to the City Council at its March 23-24 retreat. The final reports will be posted to the City’s website at www.kirklandwa.gov. For more information, contact the City Manager’s Office at 425-587-3001.
