”Honolulu City Council Looking for Participants for Survey about City Services”
The Honolulu City Council has launched a program called PLAN: Priorities Long-Term And Now. Councilmembers would like the communities input as they assess which city services are the most vital to taxpayers. This is not a scientific survey. It is one of the many tools the Council will use to set priorities for the next budget year and for the years to come.
To get the survey online, go to http:///www.co.honolulu.hi.us/council/ and click on the City Council Survey link from there.
For more information, call Kim Ribellia, senior advisor to Council Chair Donovan M. Dela Cruz, at 547-7002 or Mary Schmidtke, senior advisor to Council Member Barbara Marshall, at 547-7003.
