Citizen Survey

Earlier this year, the Texas State University Center for Research, Public Policy, and Training conducted a survey of Georgetown residents on behalf of the City. The survey included questions about City of Georgetown services, programs, and projects.

The City is also asking residents to participate in an online version of the Survey. Community feedback is extremely important to the City for planning and decision-making purposes.

Responses are confidential. Contact Dr. Thomas Longoria at tl28@txstate.edu or 512-245-6899 if you have any questions regarding the content of the survey. One time per household and do not complete if your household received a survey in the mail.

The survey can be found at georgetown.org by clicking on the news item on the survey. The deadline to complete the survey is July 15. Results will be presented to City Council in the fall.
