Amongst all of the COVID conversation, I also want to remind everyone that City business is still moving forward and we have a lot of other important information for everyone to keep on your radar.  To that, we recently released our 2020 City Survey online, and want your feedback about services in Meridian.

What do you think? How are we doing? What are your priorities for Meridian? We want to know!

Through our 2020 Citizen Survey, we hope to understand the community’s perspective on services offered in Meridian.  The survey questions focus on the quality of services that are provided both by Meridian directly, and by our service partners.  Whether considering public safety needs, our parks and pathways, an emerging downtown, or road and transportation needs, our goal is to understand how you view the quality of these services.

As part of this process, some community members will be randomly selected to participate in a statistically valid version of the survey, conducted by ETC Institute. Please be on the lookout for a piece of mail from ETC Institute, inviting you to take the survey. We ask that you take the time to help us understand your customer satisfaction with your community so we can improve the quality of services offered in Meridian.  The survey is entirely voluntary and should take only 10 to 15 minutes of your time. We ask that you complete it as soon as possible. You can either complete the written survey and return it in the mail using the postage paid envelope, or complete the survey using the online link provided by ETC Institute.

However, we don’t want to limit responses to only those randomly selected. We want to hear from all of our residents. With that, the survey is also available online at, and we encourage those of you who do not complete the survey with the consultant to devote a small portion of your time to providing us with input on these important City topics.

Please know that regardless of how you complete the survey, your responses will be completely confidential and combined with the responses of other Meridian residents.

Thank you in advance for your participation and feedback.  The information we obtain from this survey is critical to understanding the needs of Meridian residents. If you have questions about the survey, please contact the City of Meridian Mayor’s Office at 208-489-0529.  Otherwise, you can look for the survey results to be posted on the City of Meridian’s website ( by early fall.
