From the office of Mayor Tony Yarber:
The City of Jackson urges citizens to complete a new survey that will help the city move forward with its open data initiative.
Last month, Mayor Tony T. Yarber signed an executive order that will pave the way for a city government that’s more open, transparent and data driven. This concept was centered on the city’s engagement with Bloomberg Philanthropies’ What Works Cities initiative. As a part of that initiative, Jackson is committed to releasing key data sets within the city to its citizens, businesses, and organizations. The goal is to make constituents more informed about what’s occurring within the city. A survey seeking public feedback has been made available on the city website at www.jacksonms.gov or by clicking this link: bit.ly/1Mdeku7. Copies also will be available at public libraries and community centers.
We’re encouraging citizens to take the time to fill out the survey so the city can identify the sets of data most important to constituents.
