nullSt. Louis County wants input from the public about quality of life, customer service interactions with the county, preferences for communication and information services, and what people think of the job the county is doing at providing a wide set of critical services.

The county says it will be seeking input on these and other issues in a survey that will be mailed out next week to approximately 2,500 residents selected at random.

According to a county news release, information collected in the survey helps guide decisions on budgets and policy. It says, "for instance, based on the results of past surveys, the county has made significant investments in its Gravel Road Improvement Program and put more focus on services in the areas of public safety and care for the vulnerable."

The county says results of the survey will be shared this spring and will be taken into consideration by staff and commissioners as they work on next year's budget and long range plans.
