3,000 Goodyear residents to receive surveys
The National Research Center of Boulder, Colo., will soon be mailing surveys to 3,000 randomly selected Goodyear households.
The survey will be seeking public input to questions on the city’s behalf relating to quality of life, caliber of services residents are receiving and opinion of the local government.
The results will help provide city leaders direction on what is working and what needs to be improved.
A pre-notification was mailed the week of Jan. 6 letting residents know that the first mailing of surveys will be mailed the following week. The second mailing of surveys will go out Jan. 17.
Selected households that receive the surveys are asked to fill them out and return them to the sender. There is no cost to return the survey.
The National Research Center will analyze the data it receives and compile a report, which will be released in late March.
