Halton Region Asks For Input On Communication

If you are interested in taking part in the survey by Halton Region, please sign up at www.halton.ca/mvp

This is a great service provided by the Region to get as much citizen input as possible and work towards making things better.  I know that when I speak with residents in Milton about both town and regional issues, many state they don’t know what is being worked on and the time lines of these projects.

It’s our job as elected officials and as governments to do our best to make sure people are informed and that there are resources available to get that information.  If you go to the Region of Halton website www.halton.ca you will find there is a page with all contact information for different departments.  Its called the Social Media centre and I urge you to visit it and follow on Facebook, Twitter and RSS news feeds each one of these areas to stay on top of any changes, news and what’s happening in your area.

Here is the link.

Make sure you register as part of the MVP program on the Halton website and take part in this and other surveys.

I’ll see you at the doors.

Halton Region asks residents to comment on construction information

Release Date: Jan 22, 2013

On Monday, January 28, Halton Region will release a new survey to evaluate the effectiveness of its communications efforts in support of regional infrastructure planning and construction projects.

The survey is part of the ongoing Halton MVP (myViewPoint) survey series that asks an online panel of Halton residents for input on Regional programs and services. The survey results will be used to improve the Building a Better Halton communications program.

“Construction affects all of us in Halton Region,” said Regional Chair Gary Carr. “Our goal is to provide residents, businesses and commuters with useful and timely information that will help reduce the impact of Regional construction on drive times and daily life throughout the region.”

To receive Halton MVP surveys, residents must join the survey panel and complete a demographic questionnaire. Panelists may be invited to participate in up to eight surveys each year on a variety of Regional programs and services. Registration is open to all residents of Halton Region (excluding employees of Halton Region) 18 years of age or older. To register, or for more information about Halton MVP, visit www.halton.ca/MVP.

To participate in the next survey on construction communications, eligible Halton residents must join the MVP panel by Sunday, January 27, 2013.

The Halton MVP survey panel is managed and administered by Jane Armstrong Research Associates on behalf of Halton Region through a secure website. All correspondence, data collection and data analysis are the responsibility of Armstrong Research. The names of panelists, or any other identifiable information, will not be released without written permission by the participant. Individual views will remain anonymous and data will always be analyzed and presented to Halton Region in the aggregate.
