Hutt City Council seeks public feedback

Hutt City Council seeks public feedback

Hutt City Council will begin its annual survey of residents next week to track public perceptions of Council services and representation.

Seeking public opinion from the Communitrak(tm) survey will assist Council with analysing and benchmarking its performance.

Mayor Ray Wallace says "the questions reflect areas of interest to Lower Hutt and I am encouraging the community to have their say".

"We are here to serve the needs of residents and that means council must go out and actively find out what people are thinking. One of the best ways to do this is to interview a representative cross-section of residents," he said.

The survey will be conducted by the National Research Bureau, an independent research company offering specialised services to local authorities throughout New Zealand.

The randomised telephone survey will cover the six city wards and will seek opinions about a wide-ranging list of city council services delivered to residents.

The survey will begin on Friday 7 March, and is expected to be completed by Sunday 16 March.
