Naperville is again soliciting feedback from residents on a variety of services, ranging from how the city handles its finances to snow removal.
A survey was mailed earlier this month to 2,500 households. The survey also is available electronically to all residents who wish to participate at napervillesurvey.com.
Those participating will be asked such questions as "Which issues should receive the most emphasis from city leaders over the next two years?" Participants also will be asked to rate how safe they feel in a variety of places, including "downtown Naperville after 10 p.m."
Mayor George Pradel said the results will be instrumental in establishing priorities in the coming years.
"All of our residents have so many wonderful ideas and thoughts on how to improve our quality of life and the quality of city services," Pradel said.
An electronic survey with similar questions is being sent to nonresidential customers, including school and park districts and churches.
City spokeswoman Kate Houlihan said the results will be tabulated and shared with the community later this winter.
The last Citizen Survey was conducted in 2008. Council members have relied on results from that survey when addressing topics such as making information accessible to residents and sidewalk installation.
