Village asks residents to complete community survey

The Village of St. Joseph wants to know what its residents think.

The village has created a community survey, which can be found here. The survey is available until Feb. 28 and asks residents how they would rate village services and what they would like to see in their community.

“I am excited about it,” said Village Administrator Joe Hackney. “I have done in this in other communities, and I feel it is a great tool in aiding the governing bodies’ decision-making process.”

Residents can fill the survey outline or there are paper copies available at the municipal building on Lincoln.

At the end of the survey there is a page that residents can print and fill out. If they bring the page to village hall they will be entered in a drawing for a $50 gift card to the St. Joseph IGA, Hackney said.

The results of the survey will be used to help guide staff and the Board of Trustees’ decision-making process, Hackney said.

“We will use the results of the survey as a compass to establish our priorities,” he said. “Right now, the Board and staff can take an educated guess as to the wants of the community — this survey aims to make this more concrete. After the survey is completed, staff will consistently refer to it when making recommendations.”

Hackney said he hopes residents participate in the survey because it will allow them to have more direct input on the direction of the village.

“A big part of my role as Village Administrator is to bring good information, that is actionable, to the Board of Trustees to make decisions upon,’ he said. “This survey is one of the many tools we will have at our disposal to better tailor our decisions to the wants of the community.”
