((City of Brawley completes a community survey)...The survey was about city funding and resident priorities.

The City of Brawley recently completed a survey to understand the community priorities and discern their satisfaction with city services. The survey was available in english and spanish. It reached 381 Brawley residents via phone calls, email and text messages. Some of the insights from the survey are; that several items are nearly unanimous priorities for the local voters, including several aspects of public safety, keeping funds local, and retaining local small businesses. Several issues are considered serious problems by a large majority, including inflation, drugs, homelessness, road conditions, the economy and gangs and crime. They say an overwhelming number of voters perceive that the City needs additional funding for services. A formal presentation of the survey results will be delivered by the survey research firm at the May 21st meeting of the City Council.
