Views on coun­cil sought

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City Coun­cil is again seek­ing feed­back from res­i­dents about whether they are happy with its ser­vices, fa­cil­i­ties and per­for­mance.

‘‘We have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to track how well our ef­forts are car­ry­ing through to our res­i­dents,’’ said chief ex­ec­u­tive Gary Simp­son.

‘‘The best way to do this is to in­ter­view a rep­re­sen­ta­tive cross-sec­tion of peo­ple and to have this done by an in­de­pen­dent group to en­sure im­par­tial­ity.’’

In­ter­view­ing for the sur­vey com­menced last Fri­day and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the mid­dle of June.

Na­tional Re­search Bureau (NRB), an in­de­pen­dent re­search com­pany of­fer­ing spe­cialised ser­vices to lo­cal au­thor­i­ties through­out New Zealand, has been com­mis­sioned to un­der­take the sur­vey and re­port to the coun­cil.

Us­ing a ran­domised se­lec­tion method, res­i­dents from through­out the city are be­ing con­tacted by a door- to- door in­ter­viewer and asked their opin­ions on ser­vices the coun­cil de­liv­ers to res­i­dents. The sur­vey is to­tally con­fi­den­tial.
