F34E102B-20BB-4313-A833-B030C483E866

Please see below a media release issued by the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont. — Oct. 23, 2019 — The City of Burlington is looking for resident feedback to assist in the review of loose leaf collection, winter maintenance (snow removal) and pre-building permit development approval process.

As part of the reviews, the City would like to hear from residents about their satisfaction with these services. Public input will be considered in the development of the final recommendations.

The online survey will be open until Nov. 4, 2019 and can be found at getinvolvedburlington.ca/servicereview.

This engagement will incorporate the “voice of the customer” and will help shape the consultant’s recommendations so it’s important for people to complete the online surveys. The City has always worked hard to deliver efficient, cost-effective and highly valued services to residents.” — Tim Commisso, City Manager

The City was approved for up to $250,000 in funding from the Province of Ontario’s Audit and Accountability fund, to conduct independent third-party reviews to find efficiencies while protecting important front-line services.  The City is also reviewing the delivery of their corporate fleet as part of these monies.

The consultant’s final report will be delivered to the Province by Dec. 31, 2019.

MAYOR MEED WARD’S TAKE:

We’re always looking for ways to make our operations at the City more efficient without sacrificing the high-quality of services our residents expect. Hearing from you on what works and how we can improve is one of the most important things we can do in our work towards keeping Burlington the best community in Canada to live in and raise a family. We will always work to improve at the City while being fiscally responsible.

    I was disappointed in the leaf collection survey. As I see it, it was pointedly a push poll, designed to influence responders to report negative reactions to the loose leaf program. What is the point of asking for public feedback if the survey creators are trying to define the outcome? Answer? Pay lip service to the exercise.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
