Saanich businesses urged to complete feedback survey

Municipality gauging feedback from local businesses to improve its practices

The municipality wants to know how well it’s doing at helping local businesses.

The 2012 Business Survey was randomly sent to 1,500 Saanich businesses last week. Completed forms should be returned by Friday (April 13).

“Obviously we love applause, but we’re looking to improve,” said Mayor Frank Leonard. “For the municipality to be a good place for them to do business, today and for the future, we really need their feedback.”

The survey asks business owners to rank a variety of issues affecting their business, ranging from public safety to technological needs.

Paul Murray, director of finance, says the technology-related questions in the survey will help Saanich determine where it will go in providing services to businesses online.

The survey is similar to the citizen survey that was conducted earlier this year. Like the business survey, it is considered a guiding document, to help Saanich get a more thorough understanding of residents’ wants.

The results of the survey will help in the updating of the economic development strategy.
