From the Des Moines Register….
“Ankeny city officials commission a citizens survey every two years to determine if programs and services are moving in the right direction. Once again this year, city leaders learned they must be doing something right.
With the help of a national research center that specializes in municipal surveys, the city sent questionnaires in November to 1,200 randomly selected households. Thirty-six percent of those who were chosen returned the survey, with the overwhelming majority — 93 percent — saying they’re pleased with Ankeny’s quality of life.”
