The City commissioned a community survey through Decision Resources. This was a phone survey that made contact with approximately 400 residents around Delano. The purpose of the survey is to determine how the City is doing in service provision, policy direction, and overall quality of life. Each of these offers insight as to the areas in which the City can improve operations to meet the needs of our residents. Additionally, the survey helps the City to determine if it is on the "right track" through questions about public investment, redevelopment and economic development. Staff plans to use the survey results throughout the year to improve the way the City does business.
