Sur­vey seeks a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

RAN­DOMLY se­lected res­i­dents in the Shire of Mun­dar­ing will soon re­ceive a phone call to take part in the Shire’s bi­en­nial com­mu­nity per­cep­tions sur­vey.

Shire pres­i­dent David Lavell said the sur­vey, which would be car­ried out by an in­de­pen­dent con­sul­tant, would en­able the Shire to bet­ter un­der­stand the needs of res­i­dents.

“Of­ten we tend to hear from the more vo­cal mem­bers of our com­mu­nity,” he said.

“The process as­so­ci­ated with this sur­vey means we will get to hear from a broad cross-sec­tion of res­i­dents who per­haps are less likely to voice their opin­ion.”

The sur­vey will com­prise a wide range of top­ics, in­clud­ing cur­rent ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties. Ques­tions will also ad­dress how well the Shire caters for spe­cific de­mo­graph­ics such as se­niors, youth and peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.
