The City of Manteca wants to know how satisfied their customers — community residents — are with the job they are doing.

That is why have rolled out a 22 question survey aimed at gathering what people think of municipal efforts.  It is the city’s second community survey after the initial one was conducted in the fourth quarter of 2018.

The idea — advocated by the Manteca Leadership Roundtable consisting of representatives from nonprofits, the business community, schools, service clubs, and the faith community — is to develop a quality of life and performance measurement tool. The results will assist the council in future decision making. The goal is to make it an annual survey with the objective for the city to try and increase positive performance in subsequent years.

The survey takes an average of 7 minutes to complete.

The community satisfaction survey will be conducted through Dec. 31. It is similar to surveys that have been used in other cities. It can be accessed at the city’s website at
