Taking a closer look at mayor's numbers


A committee of town residents, plus three Hartwick College interns, was formed in September to update the plan, the release said. Members have been discussing planning, zoning and economic development; infrastructure, roads, water, sewer and housing; community services, public safety and library; and parks, recreation and environmental concerns.

The survey seeks to determine how satisfied residents are with services and which other services might be considered, the release said. Questions are about water and sewer services, public safety, gas drilling, recreation and commercial, residential and industrial development. A section asks about how residents connect, such as through social media, and if the town is communicating effectively. 

After the survey is completed, JZ Analytics will assemble data, and results will be presented at a town meeting, Harlem said. The project’s cost remains within the $25,000 set aside by the Oneonta Town Board, he said.
