The City of St. Helena is working with FlashVote, to engage the community and gather valuable input to make thoughtful and informed decisions. By joining, community members will be able to participate in the decision-making process by providing input to City staff and City Council. People living within St. Helena City limits are encouraged to sign up if they receive a text message from FlashVote or can easily do so online at flashvote.com/sthelena or by calling (775) 235-2240.
Sign up takes less than one minute and all survey respondent input is kept anonymous. Personal or demographic information collected by FlashVote is never shared with the City of St. Helena or anyone else. When community members sign up, they can determine how surveys are received – whether by email, text, or phone call. They will receive a notification whenever there is a new survey, and they will have 48 hours to participate before voting closes. Once a survey is closed, everyone who participated will automatically receive a summary of the overall results and be able to see how their responses compare to the group.
“Two-way communication with our residents is an essential part of our decision-making process. We are very excited to use this new technology as an additional way to enhance our two-way communication. It will allow us to gather important citizen feedback, help us to align our efforts with resident expectations, and ensure that we stay focused on improving the lives of our residents,” said Mayor Paul Dohring.
