Fringe metropolitan councils performing well: survey

Local councils on the fringe of Queensland's metropolitan southeast corner have been given the thumbs up by their constituents, according to a comprehensive survey.
 
The study, commissioned by the Local Government Association of Queensland, found that fringe metropolitan councils were given the highest performance ranking by those surveyed.
 
People rated the councils particularly highly in terms of the delivery of community lifestyle services and basic infrastructure.
 
And most people surveyed assessed the public image of their local mayors as 'good' or 'excellent'.
 
Research firm Market Facts has conducted the survey every two years since 1997. It is the most comprehensive regular study of public satisfaction with local council services in Queensland.
 
LGAQ president Margaret de Wit said the results showed there was value for councils in ensuring their communities understood the work they do.
