Community Satisfaction Survey Open Through Jan. 10

A public survey seeks input from Mountlake Terrace residents and business owners as the city measures the success of various programs and services.

The mailed survey closes Jan. 7, and the online version ends Jan. 10. The City Council will review the results in the coming weeks. The city appreciates the time spent on these surveys, which provides valuable feedback on how to allocate resources.


This process is unrelated to the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) relief funds. In recent weeks, the city also asked community members to complete a short form providing guidance on how to best use nearly $6 million in federal pandemic aid. The ARPA survey closes Jan. 2, and the City Council is scheduled to receive an update at the Jan. 3 meeting.
