For the City Times
In one of his first actions, Stevens Point Mayor Mike Wiza has established an anonymous online suggestion box.
“This is one of those ‘common sense’ items I talked about during the campaign. We’ve never really had an option like this to submit comments or suggestions to the mayor or city staff” said Wiza. “This opportunity can deal with everything from a cheaper or easier way to do something, to a concern about something the city is doing, to a compliment about city employees that may otherwise go unnoticed.”
The link will allow users to enter contact information if the user chooses to, or wishes a follow up contact, but it will not be required. Comments or suggestions can be entered into the online form and will be directed to the Mayor’s office.
“I realize that I may be subjecting myself to the possibility of some nastiness, since it is anonymous, but we’ll weed through those. I will personally review each comment or suggestion and, if needed, direct it to the appropriate department.” Wiza said.
Wiza added he’s already received his first comment, which read “Great idea. Congratulations on your new position”.
