Residents are being encouraged to give the City of Albany feedback by completing its community scorecard survey over the next month.

The 2023 Community Scorecard was officially sent out to random letterboxes and registered email addresses in the city last week.

The survey is also available on the city’s website so residents do not have to directly receive it to provide feedback.

City chief executive Andrew Sharpe said the scorecard, which is filled out every two years through anonymous survey results, was highly valued.

“The community scorecard is benchmarked across all participating local governments and allows the City of Albany to make sure the services we provide our community are meeting expectations,” he said.

“Every resident that completes the scorecard will be having an important voice in how their city looks into the future.

“The more residents that fill in the survey, the better understanding the city has of how it is meeting community priorities.

“It is important that residents take the time to complete the survey because the findings will influence what the city considers a priority in the eyes of the community.”

The city received the highest overall ranking of any regional WA local governments in the 2021 scorecard.

More than 1400 people took part in that survey, which gave the city a score of 75 out of 100.

The 2021 result showed a need for improvement in categories regarding listening and respecting views, developing and communicating a clear vision and understanding the community’s needs.

The 2023 survey will be open until March 10 at the City’s website — https://bit.ly/3KfKcae.
