CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Hamilton County Administration is seeking input from county residents as part of the development of the 2012 budget. The survey is available to all Hamilton County residents via the county website at www.hamiltoncountyohio.gov from October 10-23, 2011.
The survey is also accessible via QR code included on this page.
The 2012 survey focuses its questions on six policy issues facing Hamilton County and its residents, and asks respondents to choose among several courses of action. The 2012 survey is being released simultaneously with the County Administrator's recommended general fund budget and directly addresses several proposals of the 2012 budget.
Survey questions take on such issues as economic development, sewer district management, community planning, Sheriff's road patrols, and county taxation and service level impacts. In response to feedback on the 2011 survey, Hamilton County has provided comment boxes with every survey question to allow respondents to elaborate on their answers.
County administration anticipates releasing the survey results on October 26 as part of the Board of County Commissioner's deliberations on the 2012 general fund budget. Hamilton County residents will also have an opportunity to express their views at four public budget hearings:
- October 13, 7:00 p.m. at Delhi Township Park Lodge, 5125 Foley Road, 45233.
- October 17, 7:00 p.m. at Deer Park Municipal Building, 7777 Blue Ash Road, 45236.

- October 20, 7:30 p.m. at Springfield Township Administrative Building, Alan Paul Room, 9150 Winton Road, 45231.
The 2012 citizen survey was developed entirely through the use of existing county resources, and entails no new expenses for county taxpayers. Over 1,300 citizens completed last year's survey.
