“I encourage people to take
part as the results play a valuable role in allowing us to plan for the future
and seeing where we need to do better.”
In 2016, 84% of residents
surveyed were satisfied with the overall performance of Council.
Council services that rated
highly included sewage systems, the maintenance of sealed roads and Mt Cooee
Council facilities that rated
highly included service/information centres, libraries, playgrounds and
Roads and footpaths were
identified as the facilities most residents felt improvements could be made to.
Roads were a significant issue for rural residents and footpaths more of an
issue for urban residents.
Both roads and footpaths have seen significant investment in recent times for Council including projects like footpath renewals and sealing the
Nuggets Road. We’ll continue to invest in these areas and they will be part
of the 2018 Long Term Plan consultation programme.
