One local community has a simple request for it's citizens: Tell them what you think.
The City of Lincoln is seeking the opinions of it's citizens as they begin work on their strategic planning for their various departments. According to Lincoln Mayor Keith Snyder, a five-minute survey is available for the public to provide feedback on the services the city provides.
For Mayor Snyder, the strategic planning process is about being proactive recognizing things that could become a potential problem in the future and producing a plan to deal with it before it becomes a problem.
Gaining community input as the first part of this process is of utmost importance. According to Mayor Snyder, the commnity is a product of it's residents and citizens. He feels the community gives the City Council direction with what they think the most urgent need is.
The Mayor hopes by the time the survey wraps up early next week, around 500 surveys will have been completed.
