TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY REJECTS CITIZEN SATISFACTION FAKE NEWS!!!
Kansas City is currently enduring a historic homicide spike but recent polling from City Hall claims locals are feeling happy and safe despite rising crime, taxes, fees and water bills.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS CRY FOUL AMID RELEASE OF 2017 CITIZEN SATISFACTION NUMBERS THAT STAY WINNING DESPITE DIRE CIRCUMSTANCES IN NEIGHBORHOODS!!!
Here's the word:
"Your readers should notice that that neither the City Manager nor the Mayor made a really big deal out of these numbers because they're so laughable. The FAKE survey tells us that resident 'satisfaction' with KCMO has been increasing steadily for nearly a decade but that kind of love isn't reflected anywhere else but this survey when we're talking about mostly stagnant population growth and all the damn murders this year. There was no way they were going to make a big deal about these numbers."
However, because we believe in sharing public info for all of our readers, we invite locals to take a glimpse of the report in full.
KCMO administers an anonymous citizen survey each fiscal year to a statistically significant random sample of its population to better understand citizens’ level of satisfaction or dissatisfaction with city services as well as their priorities for improvement. Residents gave the city high marks for providing services that contribute to a positive quality of life. Another area of growing satisfaction is public transportation, notably the KC Streetcar.
Big picture bight and happy numbers of KCMO Citizen satisfaction:
There were significant increases in satisfaction ratings in all five of the perception items that were rated in both 2005 and 2016 - 17. The significant increases are listed below:
- Overall image of the city (+ 29.0%)
- Overall quality of life in the city (+16.6%)
- Quality of services provided by the city (+16.3%)
- Value received for city tax dollars and fees (+15.8%)
- Overall feeling of safety in the city (+10.9%)
In conclusion and as always, we bring the debate to our blog community . . .
