Over 1,700 Sturgeon County residents participated in the 2017 Resident Satisfaction Survey earlier this summer. 
When asked to rate the overall quality of life in Sturgeon County, 90 per cent of respondents rated quality of life as good, very good or excellent.

The results of the survey are used to guide council decisions to continue improving service delivery within the area.
“A few questions were added to receive additional feedback from residents on how Sturgeon County could improve services included in the survey,” said senior communications officer, Sheila Moore.
An area that showed significant improvement from the 2015 survey was the satisfaction with county employees.
“Administration uses the information for the purposes of corporate business planning, department operational planning, continued organizational excellence efforts and support to council’s decision making,” said CAO, Peter Tarnawsky.
Survey questions included topics from the overall quality of life to the value of property taxes.
