New survey in the works for Alpena Township

ALPENA, Mich. – A new survey for Alpena township residents may soon be in the works.

The Alpena Township Board of Trustees wants to know more about the community needs.

The board will put the topic on the agenda for its next meeting.

The board said right now, they are looking at ways to fund the survey.

Township Supervisor Nathan Skibbe said he’s already reached out to one organization who may be able to help.

“I’ve started some discussion with Denise Cline at NEMCOG as to putting together the potentials of what a cost of a township wide survey would be,” said Skibbe. “Throughout this entire process with the discussion of fire departments, we can learn what other needs are needed and what people’s opinions are towards the services they want or the services they need. ”

The board of trustees said the last survey the board gave residents was about 7 to 8 years ago.

Supervisor Skibbe said he’d like to look at alternatives that cater to all residents including a paper survey for the township’s senior population.
