50 Questions: Brentwood Phone Survey to Come in April
A $9 million Rec Center bond issue initiative lost steam in 2011. Now the Board of Aldermen are asking residents what they think.
The City of Brentwood recently announced that randomly selected Brentwood households will be asked to participate in a city survey in April.
City administrator Bola Akande told Patch that the Brentwood Community Center is the focus, and there will also be questions on city facilities and services.
The Public Works Committee approved a $9 million bond issue to pay for a renovated Brentwood Recreation Complex in 2011, but the initiative stalled out in city hall.
Akande said the survey's cost to the city is $11,800. She said there are around 50 questions and the average time to answer the survey is 10-12 minutes.
The announcement was released on Friday.
Elected officials are seeking guidance from Brentwood Residents on important issues facing the community. In order to gather resident input, the Brentwood Board of Aldermen recently contracted with The Warren Poll, a professional survey firm, to conduct a resident survey.
A random sample of Brentwood adult residents (age 18 years and older) will be contacted via telephone, the first two weeks of April (1-15th) and will be asked to share their opinion.
Mayor Pat Kelly is encouraging residents to participate because your feedback will be used to help the Board of Aldermen make decisions for community planning and resource allocation, program improvement, policy evaluation and policy making.
Keith Robertson, Chair of the Brentwood Public Works Committee, assures residents that “your responses will remain completely anonymous.”
