Press Release: Village of Little Chute Releases Survey to the Community

Little Chute, WI. (April 7, 2016) – The Village of Little Chute and the Survey Research Center (SRC) of University of River Falls collaborated to create a community survey to be released to Village residents. The survey will question residents about their satisfaction with Village services and direction on other important topics.

Since 1990, the Survey Research Center (SRC) at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls has provided statistically sound, low cost information gathering services for academics, local units of government, non-profit groups, school districts, and other organizations.  

According to the most recent 5-year estimate from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, there are approximately 8,148 adults age 18 year and older in Little Chute. Based on that number, the SRC will need to receive 367 completed questionnaires to produce viable survey results. The SRC will send the survey to a random sample of 1,101 Little Chute residents.

The Village of Little Chute has requested that residents fill out this survey in an effort to assess the services the Village provides. Each response will be taken into careful consideration when reviewing the results of the survey. It is of high priority that residents take their time completing the survey and answer honestly and correctly.

The survey will be sent out this week. Please check your mail box for this survey and return by mail. Post card reminders will be sent to non-respondents 10-14 days after the initial mailing and mailing a second survey to non-respondents 10-14 days after the reminder postcard is sent. 

The Village of Little Chute appreciates your time and input on this important effort. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. It is anticipated that the final results will be delivered approximately one month after the closing of the survey.
