Isle of Wight County is requesting the assistance of all citizens, business owners, and stakeholders that live, work, conduct business or visit the County by taking the 2014 Citizen Survey. The survey is designed to gauge satisfaction levels with county services and quality life, as well as seek input on desired amenities and services. The feedback and input of the community will greatly assist the County in delivering quality services and help shape the future of Isle of Wight County. By taking this brief survey, you could win 2 tickets to Bob FEST or Smithfield Wine & Brew Fest! We Want to Hear from You!
We borrowed the theme for this newsletter from the Isle of Wight Smithfield-Windsor Chamber of Commerce’s theme for their 30th Anniversary celebration and Annual Meeting.

We are asking all citizens, business owners, and stakeholders that live, work, conduct business or visit Isle of Wight County to take our 2014 Citizen Survey. We want to hear from you!
