City launches new engagement initiatives

At Monday’s Commission meeting the City of Madison announced three engagement initiatives. The first of those is a value survey that is available to city residents. The city says the insights gathered from the Values Survey will serve as the bedrock for defining Madison’s core values, and  also play pivotal roles in shaping the city’s overarching mission and vision. You can find the link here, or on the City of Madison-City Hall Facebook page. 

Also announced was a new program called “Java with Jameson”, an ongoing series of informal coffee gatherings with City Administrator Jameson Berreth. The first of those meetings will be held  Wednesday, June 26, from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM at The Depot (315 S. Egan Avenue).

Finally, beginning July 1, the City will launch a Communications Survey for residents. The survey’s primary goals are to gauge resident perceptions, optimize communication, and enhance engagement. It is short and simple, yet comprehensive and inclusive, allowing all residents to voice their opinions and share their experiences. Savannah Olinger, the City of Madison’s Communications and Marketing Coordinator, says feedback will “guide our progress in communication and engagement, helping us understand what we do well and where we can improve.”

Links to the survey will also be available on the City of Madison-City Hall Facebook page.
