City launches satisfaction survey for budget
The City of Cranbrook is introducing an added opportunity for residents and business owners to provide information to council ahead of its 2021 budget deliberations, with a short online survey available starting today.
The survey focuses on topics including community livability, core city services, balancing taxes, and citizen demographics.
The survey is accessible HERE through to Tuesday June 30.
The survey is also an education tool to help inform the public about the services the city provides, and the challenges Council faces each year determining how your tax dollars should be allocated across the municipality.
“I am pleased that we have provided this survey to the citizens of Cranbrook. It is important to the council and staff that we know what the citizens of Cranbrook are thinking and what they would like to see,” said Mayor Lee Pratt.
“This survey represents an important step in the city’s budget process. The results will provide insight into how residents feel about the current allocation of tax dollars and other important issues,” said Charlotte Osborne, Director of Finance for the city. “This information will help council and staff as they undertake the development of the 2021 – 2025 Five Year Financial Plan starting in September.”
“We are looking forward to the results of the survey and discussing ideas around it,” said Mayor Pratt, adding, “I hope people will take the time to complete the survey and let us know if there are areas of concern so we can address them going forward in our planning for the future.”
