Community Attitude Surveys

Volunteers from the City of Weeping Water will be distributing Community Attitude Surveys between September 17th and 27th. City Officials are requesting community participation and cooperation in cooperation in completing the survey, which is a crucial step in seeking funding from local, regional, state, and federal funding to plan and complete a variety of community and economic development projects. Such improvements may include, but are not limited to, street improvement, water and sewer system improvements, housing rehabilitation activities, cultural, park and recreation improvements, planning studies and economic development initiatives. Many of these programs require a local match, which is why city officials want to know what areas or issues residents feel are in need of improvement. Community input will allow city officials to more officially allocate limited resources for maximum public benefit. All survey results will be kept confidential and will be tabulated by an independent professional organization. Compiled results of the survey will by discussed at a public meeting to be scheduled in October of 2007. These surveys are very important for our town, make sure to take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to help out the community. Any questions or concerns regarding the survey may be directed to City Hall at 267-5152.

It would be very appreciated if everyone would try to stop in to the library on September 15th. They are going to try to break the number of attendance on the first opening day of the library!

This open house will give everyone who hasn’t attended the library lately or at all a chance to see how great our library is! Don’t forget to come and check out the changes that have been made to the library over the last couple years!
