2019 City of Lee's Summit Citizen Survey Final Findings Report

Purpose and Methodology ETC Institute administered a survey to residents of the City of Lee’s Summit during the winter of 2019. The purpose of the DirectionFinder® survey is to better understand the priorities of the City’s residents and by better understanding its residents, the City Council and staff can determine where the City is doing well and where there are opportunities for improvement. Data collected from the survey will also be used to help guide the City’s Strategic Plan – an effort to prioritize the City’s goals in a transparent and accountable manner. The seven‐page survey, cover letter, and postage paid return envelope were mailed to a random sample of households in Lee’s Summit. The cover letter explained the purpose of the survey and encouraged residents to either return their survey by mail or complete the survey online. At the end of the online survey, residents were asked to enter their home address, this was done to ensure that only responses from residents who were part of the random sample were included in the final survey database. The map below shows the location of survey respondents. Ten days after the surveys were mailed, ETC Institute sent emails and placed phone calls to the households that received the survey to encourage participation. The emails contained a link to the online version of the survey to make it easy for residents to complete the survey. To prevent people who were not residents of Lee’s Summit from participating, everyone who completed the survey online was required to enter their home address prior to submitting the survey. ETC Institute then matched the addresses that were entered

City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri Overview ETC Institute's DirectionFinder program was originally developed in 1999 to help community leaders across the United States use statistically valid community survey data as a tool for making better decisions. Since November of 1999, the survey has been administered in more than 300 cities in 49 states. Most participating cities conduct the survey on an annual or biennial basis. This report contains benchmarking data from two sources: (1) a national survey that was administered by ETC Institute during the fall of 2017 to a random sample of more than 4,000 residents across the United States and (2) a survey administered by ETC Institute in the summer of 2018 to over 350 residents living in Kansas and Missouri. Some of the Kansas and Missouri communities represented in this report include:                

Section 3 Importance‐Satisfaction Analysis

Page 86


2019 City of Lee's Summit Citizen Survey Final Findings Report

City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri Overview Today, City officials have limited resources which need to be targeted to activities that are of the most benefit to their citizens. Two of the most important criteria for decision making are (1) to target resources toward services of the highest importance to citizens; and (2) to target resources toward those services where citizens are the least satisfied. The Importance‐Satisfaction (IS) rating is a unique tool that allows public officials to better understand both of these highly important decision‐making criteria for each of the services they are providing. The Importance‐Satisfaction rating is based on the concept that public agencies will maximize overall customer satisfaction by emphasizing improvements in those areas where the level of satisfaction is relatively low and the perceived importance of the service is relatively high. The rating is calculated by summing the percentage of responses for items selected as the first, second, and third most important services for the City to provide. The sum is then multiplied by 1 minus the percentage of respondents who indicated they were positively satisfied with the City’s performance in the related area (the sum of the ratings of 4 and 5 on a 5‐point scale excluding “Don’t Know” responses). “Don’t Know” responses are excluded from the calculation to ensure the satisfaction ratings among service categories are comparable. [IS=Importance x (1‐Satisfaction)]. Example of the Calculation: Respondents were asked to identify the major categories of city and county services they thought should receive the most emphasis over the next two years. Fifty‐seven percent (57%) of respondents selected overall maintenance of streets, municipal buildings, and facilities as one of the most important services for the city to provide. With regard to satisfaction, 57% of respondents surveyed rated the City’s overall performance regarding the overall maintenance of streets, municipal buildings, and facilities as a “4” or “5” on a 5‐ point scale (where “5” means “Very Satisfied”) excluding “Don’t Know” responses. The I‐S rating for the overall maintenance of streets, municipal buildings and facilities was calculated by multiplying the sum of the most important percentages by 1 minus the sum of the satisfaction percentages. In this example 57% was multiplied by 43% (1‐0.57). This calculation yielded an I‐S rating of 0.2452 which ranked first out of 15 major service categories. The maximum rating is 1.00 and would be achieved when 100% of the respondents select an item as one of their top three choices to emphasize over the next two years and 0% indicate they are positively satisfied with the delivery of the service.

 

If 100% of the respondents were positively satisfied with the delivery of the service If none (0%) of the respondents selected the service as one for the three most important areas for the City to emphasize over the next two years.

Interpreting the Ratings Ratings that are greater than or equal to 0.20 identify areas that should receive significantly more emphasis over the next two years. Ratings from 0.10 to 0.20 identify service areas that should receive increased emphasis. Ratings less than 0.10 should continue to receive the current level of emphasis.   

Definitely Increase Emphasis (IS>=0.20) Increase Current Emphasis (0.10<=IS<0.20) Maintain Current Emphasis (IS<0.10)

2019 City of Lee's Summit Citizen Survey Final Findings Report

The Importance‐Satisfaction rating is based on the concept that public agencies will maximize overall customer satisfaction by emphasizing improvements in those areas where the level of satisfaction is relatively low, and the perceived importance of the service is relatively high. ETC Institute developed an Importance‐Satisfaction Matrix to display the perceived importance of major services that were assessed on the survey against the perceived quality of service delivery. The two axes on the matrix represent Satisfaction (vertical) and relative Importance (horizontal). The I‐S (Importance‐Satisfaction) matrix should be interpreted as follows. 

Continued Emphasis (above average importance and above average satisfaction). This area shows where the City is meeting customer expectations. Items in this area have a significant impact on the customer’s overall level of satisfaction. The City should maintain (or slightly increase) emphasis on items in this area.

Exceeding Expectations (below average importance and above average satisfaction). This area shows where the City is performing significantly better than customers expect the City to perform. Items in this area do not significantly affect the overall level of satisfaction that residents have with City services. The City should maintain (or slightly decrease) emphasis on items in this area.

Opportunities for Improvement (above average importance and below average satisfaction). This area shows where the City is not performing as well as residents expect the City to perform.

January 2019 Re: Citizen Satisfaction Survey Dear Lee’s Summit Resident: We are grateful that you have selected the City of Lee’s Summit as your community. Thank you for the personal and financial commitment you have already given to our City. In our partnership with you, we want to deliver quality services that best meet our community’s needs. Today, we are asking for your help as we look ahead on how to allocate our resources for public safety, transportation, protection of property, and other important qualities of our lives. Investing your time in our customer service survey is an important way you can contribute to your fellow neighbors and citizens. Your home has been randomly selected by our independent survey consultant, ETC Inc., to help determine our performance in providing public services to the community. We are also interested in knowing how well we are doing to create public engagement with our citizens. You are one of the lucky 5,000 individuals chosen! Please accept the important responsibility of representing others in the community. By better understanding the priorities of our residents, the Lee’s Summit City Council and staff can determine where the City is doing well, where there are opportunities for improvement and where to consider spending tax dollars in the future. The survey responses will also further determine how well our community is doing in comparison to similar size cities locally and regionally. The survey will also help guide the City’s Strategic Plan – an effort underway to prioritize the City’s goals in a transparent and accountable manner. That is why it is extremely important that you take the time to complete and return the survey in the postage paid, self‐addressed envelope as soon as possible. Your individual responses will be kept confidential. Again, your input is extremely important! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with the City. If you have questions, please contact our Administration Manager, Amy Hugunin, at (816) 969‐ 1247. Yours Truly, William A. Baird Mayor
