Overwhelming support for council performance

SATISFACTION with Fife Council services is at an all time high, according to a recent Residents Survey results.

, Survey results show 94 per cent of those asked said they were satisfied with council services, up from 78 per cent in 2009.

Almost 1,500 residents were interviewed face to face last year and asked their views on the council, local areas, local democracy, how involved people feel and customer service.

Chief Executive Ronnie Hinds said the results were hugely encouraging particularly in light of recent economic and social challenges and increasing demand.

He added: “The majority of residents, while interested in what the council is doing, are happy for us to get on with our job. It’s great to know that most people are satisfied with the way we’re doing just that.”

But several mail readers expressed disbelief at the survey results on the East Fife Mail’s facebook page.

Wendy Davis responded to the announcement asking “Early April fools, I presume?”

Andrew Scorgie commented: “Really? They never asked us. What about the forever decaying road around Linwood drive in Leven they have ignored for over a year?”

Marlese Robb also said road conditions had been getting steadily worse over the last 18 months while Hamish Fleming said he had reported a pothole at the top of Sea Road in Methil three times online and it was yet to be fixed.
