The City Does an Online Survey

The city of Eugene is doing a cultural activities survey, trying to gather public opinion about how the city should spend tax dollars to promote cultural activities.

An online survey for this purpose is a pretty interesting idea. After all, we live in a republic, not a democracy, and none of our city government officials ran on a platform involving cultural funding choices: they genuinely do not know how to represent the populace, and are politely asking.

I wonder how well it is being promoted. I only heard of it as an LCC employee. Fellow Eugenians, spread the word and make your voice heard!
