Local municipalities seek public feedback on communications and engagement
Cobourg, ON – September 19, 2023 – How do you access updates about municipal services? How do you prefer to be engaged on important local issues? Northumberland municipalities are partnering on a survey of residents and businesses to get answers to these, and other, important questions related to municipal communications and community engagement.

“Communication is always changing,” states Northumberland County Warden Mandy Martin. “It is a priority for local municipalities to connect, consult, and share information with community members using the channels you most access, and featuring the municipal policies, projects, and services that matter most to you. Hearing about your experiences, insights, and suggestions is critical to ensure that we are supporting two-way communication in ways that align with the current needs and expectations of the public.”

The information from this survey will be used to inform communications planning in each local municipality, and to arrange joint initiatives between municipalities to improve community communications and engagement. Feedback is completely anonymous, with data to be compiled by Redbrick Communications – the consultant supporting this effort – and shared back with municipalities as overall data points. A report-back to the community on the results of this survey will be shared before the end of 2023.

Help shape municipal communications across Northumberland to help us serve you better. Take our joint survey by October 10th at
