Mesquite, TX – December 18, 2017 – The City of Mesquite has released the results of its 2017 Community Survey and they are available at www.cityofmesquite.com/2017Survey.
Mayor Stan Pickett said, “These survey results affirm that the City Council’s policy issues are aligned with what is most important to our citizens. This includes public safety, roads and code enforcement. We were happy to see that Mesquite rates 20 percent above the Texas average in customer service and 15 percent above the Texas average in the value of services residents receive for the taxes and fees they pay. However, we understand that we can always do better. And, that is what we are going to continue to do by focusing on the issues most important to the citizens we serve.”
The survey results indicated that nearly seven out of every 10 respondents rated Mesquite as an “excellent” or “good” place to live. A summary of the survey results revealed the top three issues citizens believe Mesquite will face during the next five years are public safety, street maintenance and neighborhood vitality.
In October, a seven-page survey was mailed to a random sample of 6,000 households throughout Mesquite. Selected residents had three different methods they could choose to use in responding to the survey. They could use the postage-paid envelope provided to return their survey by mail, they could use an online portal to complete the survey or they could provide their answers by phone. The survey was implemented in a bilingual format for residents who prefer to speak or write in Spanish.
In addition to the statistically valid random sample survey, there was also an online version available to the general public to provide feedback, from October 20 - November 10. There were 349 responses to the online survey.
