Manhattan asking for opinion of city with survey

By  | 

MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - The future of Manhattan will soon be in the email box of residents.

The City of Manhattan is emailing a Community Survey to about 5,000 residents with a website link and password on Monday. About 1,000 postcards with a link will be sent to homes without an email.

Residents have a chance to give their opinion on the city's services, funding, future projects and their quality of life.

The survey will also ask demographic information, such as household size, income and how long they have lived in Manhattan.

"Moving the survey online will allow the City to reach more households
at a lower cost, while also ensuring the sample is representative of the
Manhattan population," said Jared Wasinger, assistant to the city manager. "Each neighborhood will represented proportionately within the sample based on the total number of households within city limits. We want to see a high response rate, so we're asking residents to be on the lookout for an email or postcard in case they have been selected."

The city says all responses will be confidential.
