So, I’ve realized we haven’t spent much, if any, time looking into the results of the always interesting Decatur Citizen Survey.
The survey is conducted once every two years and was most recently released in September 2014. And there are always some interesting little tidbits in there worth highlighting.
For starters, here’s an interesting bar chart showing resident feedback of the city’s various “technology services”.
Smart 911 – a free service that allows residents and business owners to create a safety profile of vital personal and household data, which is available to emergency “call takers” immediately – and the CodeRed Emergency Notification System – a phone notification system for emergency situations – ranked #1 and #2 in residents’ opinions.

Meanwhile, the city’s free wi-fi initiative, which was pulled out of residential neighborhoods back in 2013 and is now only offered in public spaces, rated lowest with only a total of 49% of residents rating it “Excellent” or “Good”.
