A SURVEY allowing the community to have its say on how the City of Kwinana should spend its maintenance money is open until June 28.

People will be able to indicate where they think such funds should be spent, on infrastructure such as buildings, roads, parks and playgrounds.

It also asks how community groups should be charged to use city facilities.

Mayor Carols Adams said it was an exciting initiative to put the power back in the hands of the community by seeking their input.

“As the City is rapidly growing it is vitally important to ensure that assets are managed to meet the needs of the community and of the user groups who utilise a number of the community’s facilities.

“Elected Members will use the information from this survey to inform their decision making as they seek to align the City’s management of assets with community priorities,” Mayor Adams said.

The survey is available here.
