— City and county residents who received a community survey from the city of Steamboat Springs have until Friday to return them if they want their voices to be heard.

As of Friday, the city had received back more than 1,000 of the 3,000 surveys it sent out to random households.

The response rate was reportedly at 36 percent.

The survey gives community members a chance to grade the quality of city services and let the Steamboat Springs City Council know what the city’s funding priorities should be in the coming years.

The survey can also be taken online.

The city mailed out surveys to 2,000 households in the city limits and to 500 second-home owners who don’t reside in the city full-time. Surveys also were sent to 500 households in Routt County that lie in the boundaries of the Steamboat Springs Rural Fire Protection District.

Survey results will be presented to the Steamboat Springs City Council next month.
