Beavercreek City Council and staff would like to thank residents who took time to provide feedback through the city’s first FlashVote survey. The survey was in regard to city communications and consisted of the following five questions:
- Please rate the job the City of Beavercreek does of informing you about city services, programs, and other news.
- In the last 12 months, which of the following, if any, have you used to get information about the City of Beavercreek?
- Which of the following City of Beavercreek topics are you most interested in getting news and information about, if any?
- The city would like to make it easier to meet with elected officials. How would you like to meet with your city council members?
- Any other comments or suggestions about the City of Beavercreek communications, including how you would most like to receive information about the city?
Residents who created an account with FlashVote had 48-hours to complete the survey from its initial push on Tuesday, August 2. In total, 265 Beavercreek residents participated in the survey. Results from this first survey will be used to help city council and staff communicate more efficiently and effectively with residents.
A majority of residents said they get their information about the City of Beavercreek through the city’s social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), Beavercreek In Touch (newsletter mailed to residents quarterly), and website.
A small number of residents said they receive their news through the city’s Notify Me (push alerts), council meetings, and cable access channel.
We would like to remind residents of these available sources to get information about the city:
