Hamilton County announces Citizen Survey results

Hamilton County Administration has placed the results of its 2011 citizen survey on the county website for public review. The survey was conducted online from July 8 through August 8, 2010 and was posted on this blog for our readers’ convenience. The results will remain online through the development of the 2011 budget.

The 2011 survey was completed by 1,336 county residents who responded to questions about such topics as the stadium fund revenue shortfall, 911 call center consolidation, drug incarceration policies, election policies, Sheriff’s road patrols, approaches to public health and mass transit, and overall county government reform.

The survey responses have been provided to the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners and will be considered as they deliberate on budget priorities for 2011 over the next several months. All other county agencies and elected officials have also been provided access to the results.

Survey results are available through the end of August by clicking here. After August 31, the results will remain on the webpage of the County Administrator’s Office of Budget and Strategic Initiatives through the end of the 2011 budget process.

Hamilton County residents will have more opportunities to express their views at public budget hearings to be scheduled during October.

The 2011 citizen survey was developed entirely through the use of existing county resources and entails no new expenses for county taxpayers.
