Residents’ concerns and approvals can steer Opa-locka into a community with a vision for success. That’s what city officials are expecting from a survey that’s being sent to almost 4,000 Opa-locka residents via mail in February.
Residents are asked to rate their level of satisfaction with city services with questions varying from recreational activities to government performance.
“This is the first time our city is conducting a residential survey, which has the ability to substantially impact whether the city is doing what people want,” said Mayor Myra L. Taylor. “It’s important for our residents to participate and return a completed survey.”
Surveys are being sent throughout the entire city in the utility bill and in the mail. The survey is available in English, Spanish and Creole for anyone living inside Opa-locka city limits to complete.
“The survey results allow us to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of our operations,” said City Manager Kelvin L. Baker, Sr. “This is one way for us to keep our finger on the pulse of critical city services and activities.”
Residents are asked to return the survey to the city by March 14th. For more information about the survey, residents can call (786) 338-6087.
