City releases citizen survey results on GO Bond renewal projects
Broken Arrow city leaders released results from a comprehensive citizens’ survey completed in November. Residents were asked opinions on future projects, satisfaction on major city services and ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of services. The results provide much-needed data to the Broken Arrow City Council to make informed decisions while formulating a proposal to renew the city’s general obligation bond in 2018.
The City of Broken Arrow invited the community to participate in the online survey through notices in city-issued utility statements, social media and community organizations. Citizens without internet access were supplied a paper survey. The survey was open from Oct. 1-Nov. 10, 2017, and resulted in 2,579 households completing the survey.
“The high number of respondents clearly shows citizens want to be heard in the decision-making process,” said City Manager Michael Spurgeon. “The responses provide valuable feedback to ensure the City’s priorities are aligned with the needs of our residents.”
City administrators will thoroughly analyze all of the write-in comments and match any requests for projects with those the Administration is planning to present to the City Council.
