Engaging with Community

Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said Council was working on improving the way it engages with the community.

“Council’s small Communications and Engagement team will be using new tools and methods to enable feedback to be collected from members of the community,” Cr Wriedt said.

“Every few months, Council will be sending out small ‘Community Ask’ surveys on social media to help us understand what our residents think about various issues.

“Some of the survey questions will be about services and programs delivered by Council.

“Other information helps us advocate on behalf of Kingborough when lobbying the State and Federal Government for funding.

“In order to gain the best reach relative to our resourcing, Council is partnering with a community insights organisation called Zencity.

“Zencity have previously undertaken independent analysis and reporting on some of our key surveys such as the Transform Kingston Main Street Design and the Cycle Strategy.

“This month we are trialling their ‘community ask’ short survey tools and in future we will be looking at their citizen engagement platform for some of our larger engagement projects,” Cr Paula Wriedt said.
