What Do You Think of the Lake Forest Website? The City Wants to Know

The city is asking residents and business owners to take an online survey.

The following is from the City of Lake Forest:

The City of Lake Forest is always interested in receiving input and engaging the community in topics that affect the quality of life in Lake Forest. To help assess its effectiveness and efficiency, the City is asking all residents and Lake Forest business owners to complete a brief questionnaire about the City’s website. The survey will be online until Friday, July 25, 2014.   

The website debuted in late spring of 2013, and a year after launch, the City would like to get input about what works and what needs to be improved.  The survey is located on the home page of the City’s website (www.cityoflakeforest.com) in the “News” section.

A survey about... the website? I'll file that with the survey about shoveling snow under "who gives a sh!t". How about a survey detailing the Whole Foods site development cost to taxpayers and the expected tax revenue? How about a survey about Dunkin' Donuts at the train station? Ya know, more important topics than whether or not the website looks pretty.

The survey itself and the comment section of this article seem like great opportunities to constructively provide feedback to the city on any aspect of its website. PC you have expressed dissatisfaction with the quality and transparency of financial disclosure. Seems like the are begging people like you to provide feedback on the areas you see as being in need of material enhancement.

Every person I know who is broke (aren't we all?), I say, Step 1: Write a legible budget. We can't even get past step 1! You think the treasury report is legible? No one does. Why are we paying Holleb $150K to put out garbage? Why should I or anyone have to ask for better financial disclosure? Isn't that part of step 1? Ha! They won't do it. You know why? Because if they created a spread sheet with a description/justification for each item, they would be crushed with queries like "Why are we paying for X?" all day long. Instead, it's disorganized, jumbled, or worse... I'll bet this city easily blows $10-20 million on useless "things". Add in their pensions to administrate the purchase, and we could be overspending by many more millions. Everyone gripes about Obama this, Bush that, but they won't look in their own front yard. Again, I love seeing my fellow citizens having fun. But it would be really cool, too, if my taxes went down. I'll decide where to spend my dough, thank you very much!
