A community survey of all property owners in the Four Lakes Special Assessment District was sent in late January/early February to understand residents’ views of the assessment and property owner demographics. Here are some common questions we're hearing now.
If I do not answer a question will my survey be counted?
Yes, you may leave a question blank and your survey will still count. We hope you will complete the entire survey. Your opinion is important to us.
How will my information be used?
The purpose is to inform the counties and FLTF decision-making related to the special assessment, as well as help us understand the sentiment of the community moving forward.
How is FLTF protecting confidentiality of the respondents?
The survey is anonymous. To make the survey easy to complete online, individual property owners have a code which can be tracked back to their name. This code system is designed to ensure that no one can take the survey more than one time. It can only be referenced by Public Sector Consultants and will not be used to review individual responses. No one in the FLTF organization will have access to the surveys or to the names of individuals who have completed a survey.
Why does the survey ask for demographic information?
Demographic information helps us understand broad characteristics of the population and analyze data based on those characteristics. It is a best practice for surveys to ask demographic information.
Where did the mailing list come from?
The mailing list came from Gladwin and Midland counties. The county treasurer and/or township assessor provided a list of addresses where tax bills are sent within the Four Lakes Special Assessment District.
