City News: Police Chief Finalists, City Services Survey

Two recent City news items that affect all of us in Oakhurst:

Most residents satisfied with city services; public safety, streets merit attention

Most Fort Worth residents are satisfied with city services, although they would like to see more emphasis placed on street and facility maintenance and public safety services.

Those are the major findings of the latest citizen survey, conducted this spring by ETC Institute of Olathe, Kan.

The survey's purpose was to assess residents' satisfaction with the delivery of major city services and to help determine priorities for the community as part of the city's ongoing planning process. Of the households that received a survey, 1,685 completed the survey. At least 200 households were surveyed in each of the city's eight council districts.

More than three-fourths (76%) of respondents indicated they were satisfied with the quality of life in Fort Worth.

Get ready to meet the finalists for police chief

Finalists for Fort Worth police chief are expected to be announced later this week, and the public will have an opportunity to meet the candidates the following week.

“A very important part of this recruitment and hiring process is transparency and inclusiveness,” City Manager David Cooke said. “To that end, one of the components of the process is a Community Forum where members of the public can meet and listen to the candidates answer questions.”

The Community Forum is planned for 7-9 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex, 501 W. Felix St.
