“This is a great opportunity for our residents to indicate how they feel about the overall direction of the city, what DeLand’s city government is doing well and what areas they feel should be improved,” said Mayor Robert F. Apgar.

Residents who receive the survey are asked to fill it out as soon as they can and send it back with the post-marked envelope provided.

If you are not comfortable with a paper survey, there is an online survey option.
