The final week to fill out Longboat Key’s fourth annual citizen satisfaction survey has arrived. 

In early January, the town sent each household a letter in the mail with a unique code and a set of instructions for completing the survey. 

Anyone who missed the letter or didn't receive one can still take part by contacting Support Services Director Carolyn Brown at [email protected] or  941-316-1999.

The survey closes Feb. 11. 

Homeowners can access the survey online from their home computers, tablet or phone. If desired, residents can also fill out the survey at digital the kiosk in Town Hall as long as they come prepared with their letter showing their unique code. 

All answers to the approximately 50 questions included in the survey will be anonymous. 

A variety of topics are covered in questions to residents and include the quality of town beaches, parks and town-owned amenities, departmental services such as police, fire and public works and events residents would like to see available at the Town Center. Many of these questions are asked annually as a means of tracking trends. 

New questions for the 2023 edition of the survey include use of emergency personnel, levels of social media use, hurricane preparedness and the amount of time a resident actually lives on the Key. 

The final report is expected to be completed and presented to Town Commissioners in advance of their April Strategic Planning Retreat. 

The town remains contracted with the John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government at the University of South Florida. 

The survey costs the town about $23,000 annually.
