2019 Albany Community MARKYT® Survey Results

The City of Albany conducts a MARKYT® Survey every 2 years to get feedback on how the community feel the City is performing against commitments made in their Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework. For the first time ever in the Local Government sector this Survey was conducted in partnership with the other 10 Great Southern Local Governments.

Survey results indicate that while the City continues to perform above the Local Government average in most service areas the community is asking us to focus on leadership aspects including engagement, transparency and articulating a clear vision and infrastructure upgrades to pathways, roads and trails. The City has started to address the leadership issues through their revised Communications and Engagement Strategy and there will be a continued focus on how we can best connect with the community.

Here is a link to the survey results:
