MARION — The city of Marion opened an online survey Tuesday with the hopes of learning more about life in the city.

This year’s citizen survey includes questions about quality of life, demographics, and local government services and use. The information is meant to inform city leaders about how they’re serving residents, gauge perceptions of Marion and see how the community compares to peer cities, according to a news release.

“The results will be used to inform our strategic plan, the budget process and department work plans. I encourage everyone living in Marion to take the survey and help us chart our community’s future,” Mayor Nicolas AbouAssaly said in a statement.

The online response option is for residents over 18 who weren’t one of 1,700 households selected for a random mail survey.

The deadline for the survey is Aug. 28. Residents can respond here.
