As a consequence of the recent unpleasantries of the campaign season, the county's "Endless Opportunities" newsletter took a heap of criticism.
Whatever your views on the publication, delivered with monthly water bills, be sure to take a look at this month's newsletter.
On the second page is a survey from the county's Community Events Department, seeking citizen input regarding programs at county venues. A similar survey a couple of years ago provided valuable feedback to county staffers, and that in turned helped produce programs with growing popularity. A good example is the current series of Christian concerts being held at the amphitheater, one of the types of programming citizens requested.
The new survey asks similar questions, with respondents noting which type of events they've attended in the past, and which sort of events they would like to see more of. Other questions seek preferences on when events should be held, and how the respondents could best hear about upcoming attractions.
Columbia County has a small but beautiful performing arts center, a popular amphitheater and memorial gardens, Savannah Rapids Pavilion and several other venues - with more to come, including an amphitheater at Wildwood Park, a performance venue at Town Center Park and a proposed exhibit facility in the "Gateway" area. It stands to reason that citizens get the best bang for their buck with programming that more people would attend.
The survey should take just a couple of minutes to complete. Best of all, you can do it on your own time, without an evening-meal interruption from a telephone surveyor. Just fill it out and return it when paying your water bill.
