The Boone County Fiscal Court is partnering with Northern Kentucky University to perform a citizen survey.

The goal is to evaluate satisfaction with County services and assist with setting future priorities.

The collection, compilation and analysis of data will be done by MPA students at NKU to ensure its reliability and objectivity. This survey is anonymous, participation is voluntary and no individual information will be collected.

Residents who received the survey are asked to review the questions, provide information and return the document to the University following the directions on the survey. There is no cost to mail the completed document.

The survey includes information related to Fiscal Court departments, services and programs and does not include any service provided by a City, the County Clerk, County PVA or Circuit Clerk.

“Boone County is committed to continuous improvement and superior service and this survey is a very helpful tool in recognizing areas of strength, evaluating opportunities for improvement and identifying issues important to our citizens,” said Judge/Executive Gary Moore.

Surveys will be sent to a randomly selected sample identified by Northern Kentucky University.

Those who receive the survey are asked to return it no later than April 20, 2019, by folding the survey twice and using the address, postage paid cover. NKU will tabulate the results and present them to the Fiscal Court at a future public meeting.

Petco Foundation awards $35,000 to Boone County Animal Shelter

Boone County Animal Care & Control has been awarded a $35,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its lifesaving medical treatment program.

This investment will enable BCACC to treat and rehabilitate homeless animals in its care, with the goal of saving the lives of as many adoptable animals as possible. The grant will also allow BCACC to continue to offer the highest level of service to the citizens of Boone County.

Since 1999, the Petco Foundation has invested more than $250 million in lifesaving animal welfare work.

Through its Think Adoption First program, it partners with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, it has helped more than six million pets find new homes. For more information, click here.
