3rd Annual Citizen Survey

The City of Decatur wants to know what citizens really think about their community life and municipal government. Such input helps the City Commission make better-informed decisions and enables city staff to provide quality services that meet real community needs.

To gather such information and insights directly from citizens, the City (with the help of the National Research Center) randomly selected a number of Decatur households to participate in our 3rd citizen survey. If you were selected to participate you would have received a notification card in the mail beginning, Friday, 26 February 2010. Surveys were placed in the mail on Friday, 5 March 2010 so be on the lookout.

If you weren't selected but would like to get in on a piece of the action, visit the City's online forum Open City Hall. Two of the questions (one concerning a bond issue and the second concering tax rates & service levels) included in the survey are making an appearance in order to give all residents a chance to respond.

For more information on the citizen survey and to see results from the previous two surveys, check out the Citizen Survey page on our website.

  1. Thanks, Meredith, for posting this information, and for being the first additional contributor to the Decatur Tax Blog!

    I see there have already been a lot of "Tax and Service Level" responses online. Open City Hall seems like a great tool!
