Fruita mailing survey on
 city government to residents

Fruita city officials are urging residents not to reactively throw out a mailer they’ll likely receive over the next few days.

The 2013 Community Survey might look like junk mail, but it’s actually residents’ best chance to express concerns and give suggestions to their elected leaders and city staff.

“It’s our chance to get a scientific representation of what the community is thinking, and it’s something that the (city) council really uses to do their goal-setting,” City Manager Clint Kinney said.

The seven-page survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete, Kinney said. It has a prepaid return envelope. Most of the questions are check-box style on a host of issues. Some questions allow for comments. All the surveys are anonymous.

In 2009, the last time the city conducted a citizen survey, residents pinpointed issues with city streets and sidewalks. As a result, Kinney said, “over the past couple of years we have been pumping a lot of money into asphalt and sidewalk repairs.”

Residents who don’t get a survey in the mail can fill one out online at Folks with questions can call 858-3663.
