Mountlake Terrace: Survey for community
A community satisfaction survey, conducted every other year since 2007, will be arriving in mailboxes later this month. The survey is intended to measure residents' satisfaction with community services, which helps guide the Mountlake Terrace City Council for the next two years.
It's a random survey and not every resident will be surveyed. The resident with the most recent birthday in a household is asked to complete and return the survey.
