Annual Community Survey underway next week

Upper Hutt City Council will ask residents their views on a range of services.

UPPER HUTT, Wellington NZ, 5 FEB 2013—This year’s annual community survey will begin on Monday, 11 February 2013. The survey, which is initiated by Upper Hutt City Council, may take up to a month, concluding on Monday 11 March.

Key Research has been contracted to undertake the telephone survey on behalf of the Council.

400 people over the age of 18 will be interviewed as part of the survey. People contacted will be randomly selected from the telephone listings for Upper Hutt City. The survey will give respondents the opportunity to share their views on a range of services that Council delivers, and to comment on where improvements can be made.

“This information helps the Council to identify ways to better meet the needs of the Upper Hutt community,” says Upper Hutt Mayor, Wayne Guppy. “It forms an important part of Council’s accountability to the community. If you receive a call, please take the time to answer the questions.”

Key Research will be calling people between Monday 11 February and Monday, 11 March 2013.

The survey results will measure the Council’s performance against the majority of targets outlined in the Long Term Plan 2012 – 2022. They will then be made public in the Annual Report 2012 – 2013.

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.

Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties. Despite Finlayson’s misleading signals on RNZ that these are only stopgaps until next year’s full review of our security laws, the measures in question will not, in fact, expire until 2018.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
