CARLISLE — Cumberland County commissioners released a public survey Thursday to gauge resident feedback on which services matter most in the county.

The county mailed the survey to 2,500 randomly selected residents “in an effort to ensure that the survey reaches a diverse group that fairly represents all geographic areas of the county.” The survey is also available online at for all residents. Residents may also request a paper copy by calling 240-6150.

The survey will be available until Oct. 15, and all residents are encouraged to participate. The results will help the county’s Early Intervention Program consultant team, Public Financial Management, shape budget recommendations for 2014, which include alternatives to double-digit property tax increases.
