The fifth annual town of Longboat Key Citizen Satisfaction Survey will arrive in mailboxes starting the week of Jan. 10. 

The town is asking all residents to participate in the survey to provide feedback on aspects such as policy issues, the quality of town amenities and departmental services like police, fire rescue and Public Works. 

In the mailer, a unique code is sent to residents along with a set of instructions for accessing the online survey. 

The John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government at the University of South Florida is administering the survey, which consists of approximately 50 questions and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. These questions are designed to elicit residents’ opinions on town services, quality of life issues and town policy choices. Examples of survey topics include:

  • The quality of town beaches, parks and town-owned amenities
  • Town departmental services such as police, fire/EMS and Public Works
  • What type of events should be available at the outdoor venue at the Town Center

The answers to the survey questions are collected anonymously. The survey can be completed on a device at home or by utilizing a kiosk in the Town Hall lobby.

The results of the survey will give owners a chance to provide feedback and express opinions on services and policies to help the town’s leaders direct Longboat Key’s priorities.

Town staff asks that all surveys be completed by Feb. 10, and expects the final report to be published by the end of April or the beginning of May. 

If residents do not receive a letter in the mail by Jan. 18, the town advises to call or text 941-281-4985 to receive a response within 24-48 hours. Any other questions can be directed to town hall at 941-316-1999.
