City Survey Just Short of 100 Percent Participation

Most Elgin residents have done their part, now just a few more need to finish the task of making the community eligible to receive grant funds for needed projects.

More than 190 residents in the community received surveys in the mail in November. The Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District (NENEDD) out of Norfolk assisted city officials in developing the survey. City Clerk Vicki Miller said Tuesday all but 23 surveys have been returned to NENEDD. One hundred percent of the surveys need to be returned, she said. As a result, those 23 will again be sent surveys.

“Please take time to return the completed survey so the City may be able to receive grant funds up to $350,000,” she said. Grant funds could be used to improve such things as streets, water and sewer.

“Returning the surveys could make it possible to improve your community,” she said.

Each survey is numbered, Miller said, however it is for the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s use only. Income survey information will be kept completely confidential. Residents receiving surveys are asked to complete and mail them back to in the enclosed envelopes as soon as possible.
