Windsor seeking community feedback

Windsor seeking community feedback

The town of Windsor is seeking community feedback for a survey designed to gauge the town's level of service and resident perceptions.

"The National Citizen Survey provides an opportunity for us to connect with our community members and gain a better understanding of opinions of town services and quality of life," said Town Manager Kelly Arnold in a news release.  "It will provide us a baseline of how our town government is serving residents in comparison with peer cities."   During the week of May 22, 1,500 households in Windsor will receive mailed invitations to participate, according to the release. Responses from the printed surveys will be analyzed for the survey results. 

"The survey includes questions about our community's quality of life, local policies, demographics, rating of local government services and resident use of services," Arnold said in the release. "Our leadership will use the results to identify areas of improvement, as well as to plan for the long-term success and sustainability of our services and amenities. This will enable us to prioritize resources during our budgeting process."

Windsor contracted with National Research Center Inc. for the survey, the third time since 2011 the town has participated in the survey. According to the release, the results will be available in fall 2017 as a published report on the town's website

Correction

In 2010, the Windsor-Severance Fire Protection District had 1,474 calls, and the department had 2,787 calls this past year. The story "3 things to know from the town board meeting" on Page 3 of Wednesday's paper incorrectly listed the call volume.
