Kingston City Hall is looking to do some market research on how the Royal Military College students use and learn about municipal services. The results of an online survey will determine how city hall communicates to students about municipal services. A 10-question survey has been placed on the city’s website and asks students to identify
their year and area of study, where they live relative to the student village, where they hang out and how they prefer to access information, such as through online sources, Facebook, e-mail or through their student government. The survey, the city says, takes about five minutes to complete. It is available online and includes a comment field that is
open until Sept. 19.

To view it, go to www.cityofkingston.ca/mynewhome.

The survey also gives students the option of giving their e-mail address to the city if they want to receive messages on municipal services. Students at Queen’s, Royal Military College and St. Lawrence College can find information about city services, such as garbage and recycling pickup, Kingston Transit, recreational programs and property standards
online at www.cityofkingston.ca/students.
