Introducing issue # 6
Across the country the submission period for the current Long Term Plan has mostly closed. It appears from various headlines on local news sources and Councils’ own new channels that the response has been excellent.
This is great news, for empowering residents and ratepayers and including them in the decision-making process, which is one of the chief roles of Council. And to have such an encouraging response has to be good for the decision-making process.
With regard to finding out what residents and ratepayers think and feel about certain issue, can I remind you of the polls and survey functions included within our Buzzit platform. Ideal for gaining insights before consultation documents go out for formal submission. There is a wee reminder of this feature of Buzzit further on in this issue of Buzzit.
