Citizen Survey

Town of Erie 2015 Citizen Survey
Feedback Sought on Quality of Life and Town Services

Beginning the first week of April, 3,000 randomly selected Erie households will be invited to participate in the 2015 Town of Erie Citizen Survey. A pre-survey postcard and two mailings of the survey will be sent to each of the selected households.  All randomly selected households are encouraged to participate and complete the survey.  The final report with survey results will be made available to the public this summer.

The 2015 Town of Erie Citizen Survey is designed to better understand our citizens’ thoughts about a variety of issues including: quality of life; quality of services; safety and community engagement.  Information obtained through the survey will assist the Board of Trustees and Town staff in improving service delivery and identifying spending priorities.  The survey results will serve as an important measure of the Town of Erie’s performance and will include the benefit of comparability with other jurisdictions.

This is the second year the Town of Erie has contracted to participate in the National Citizen Survey (NCS).  The previous survey was conducted in 2013 and distributed to 1,200 households.  The NCS is a service of the National Research Center and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).  The NCS has been designed to complement the work of ICMA’s Center for Performance Measurement. 

The 2015 Town of Erie Citizen Survey has a statistically valid margin of error of +/- 3%.  With this margin of error, you may conclude that when 60% of survey respondents report that a particular service is “excellent” or “good” somewhere between 57% and 63% of all Erie residents are likely to feel the same way.
