The annual citizen survey is given to some 8-thousand randomly selected Kansas City households. The survey polls citizens on city services like parks, public safety, and infrastructure. City auditor Mark Funkhouser says the survey helps gage how well city government is doing.

The survey will be conducted by the Olathe based ETC institute. Kansas City is one of 20 area cities that participates in a citizen survey. The survey results are used to find areas for improvement and compare Kansas City to cities in the region and across the nation.
