As part of its commitment to customer service, the District conducts two different types of customer surveying on an annual basis. The first type of surveying is titled the Post-Contact Customer Survey. Post-Contact surveying is conducted with customers that have proactively contacted the District with a service or billing issue. Each month, the District surveys 150 of these customers, with the number evenly split between service and billing calls. The results of this surveying are aggregated into quarterly reports that staff uses to monitor and improve our customer service. The type of surveying is titled the Annual Customer Satisfaction Survey. The Customer Satisfaction surveying is conducted with a representative sample of all of the District’s customers. Contrasted with the Post-Contact surveying, participants in the Customer Satisfaction Survey may or may not have contacted MSD with a service or billing issue during the course of the year. Customer Satisfaction surveying solicits feedback on a broad set of topics about MSD and its performance. I would like to invite Nick Jones, who is with our survey contractor, the ETC Institute, to provide the board and the public with the current results of this surveying. Nick Jones addressed the Board and recapped the 2018 Customer Satisfaction Survey. The Post Contact survey is information gathered from customers who contacted MSD during the past year to objectively evaluate the billing and field operations. This survey has been conducted for approximately 15 years. Edited 7/5/19 Pg. 4 Each month, 150 surveys are completed from customers who had contact with billing or field services. For each quarter, that gives us about 450 surveys, which offers us a margin of error of +- 4.6% at the 95% level of confidence. Over the course of the year we conduct 1800 surveys which gives us a margin of error +- 3% at the 95% level of confidence. We ask customers to answer Yes or No phone survey questions about their experience with employees. MSD has exceptionally good customer service experiences in 2018 with the same set of questions asked for field service. These numbers were exceptional for field service as well. There is also an overall satisfaction service provided, rated 1 – 10 and these were at an all-time high reaching 9.0. The ratings for billing and filed service both are at an all-time high and MSD should work to sustain those superior numbers in the years to come. Thank you, Mr. Chair. That concludes my Executive Director report and Way to go Blues! Edited 7/5/19 Pg. 5 Comments from the Public: John Larson: 9819 Mar Ann Ct. Mr. Larson distributed documents and images of his complaint. Mr. Larson addressed the Board about a construction project that has been in existence in his backyard for a lengthy amount of time and he expressed concern about the lack of activity and delayed completion. Mr. Larson asked if the Board could offer assistance in determining why the job started late and has now gone past its completion date. Rich Unverferth, Director of Engineering, notified the Board that he would investigate the project and provide the Board with an update regarding the project. Submission of Public Hearing Reports: Report from the “Finding of Fact” Committee At the Budget, User Charge, Capital Improvement and Replacement and Tax Rate Public Hearing held on May 9, 2019 a Finding of Fact Committee consisting of Trustees Faul, Yates, and Singer as an alternate were appointed to determine that the proposed taxes should be levied, assessed and collected as recommended by staff.
