replies, 46 said excellent, 35 said very good, 41 said fairly good, 10 said mildly good, and none said not good at all. The 10th survey asked, “What topics would you like most to learn about or have the City Council address?” It allowed residents to give written replies. Answers varied from concerns about street repairs, drainage issues, public transportation, accountability and transparency in city government to city aesthetics and preservation. Howell said he wants to do more surveys to create greater unity, transparency and understanding between residents and city government. He plans on trying to reach more residents during the next one. “The reason why it was so important is to get out there and show people that in order for us to perform, we need them to give us ideas and help us,” Howell said. “I want to reach out more and I want to be able to get everyone’s opinion, and I feel these surveys are the way to do it. I think sharing that information helps the city, the City Council and the residents know that we’re all transparent here, that we’re not hiding anything, especially in areas that we may not be as strong and have room for improvement.”
