Hurst red-light-camera survey to start Wednesday

HURST - City officials want to know what residents think about red light cameras, city services and the community’s quality of life.
They’ll get the answers from a telephone survey that will start Wednesday.
“It’s one of several tools we utilize to gather feedback from the residents and business here in Hurst,” Assistant City Manager Jeff Jones said.
Residents will be asked to weigh in on such issues as to whether the city should install cameras at high-traffic intersections, whether the city should have wireless Internet service at some city buildings and if they would support putting their trash in carts in return for lower rates.
In the 2005 survey, residents were asked if the city should prohibit vehicles from being parked in front yards. The high support rate helped lead to last year’s ordinance that banned front-yard parking.
The 10-minute telephone survey, which will be conducted by the University of North Texas Survey Research Center, is expected to generate 400 random responses over three weeks.
Residents who don’t receive a call can take the survey at www.ci.hurst.tx.us.
The results will be revealed at the city’s annual Town Hall meeting, tentatively scheduled for Feb. 8.
