Mariposa County, as a local government, strives to improve the quality of life for its residents through active community engagement and the efficient delivery of outstanding public services. To meet our mission, we need to hear what our residents want and how we're doing with the services we have committed to deliver. Surveys provide a unique opportunity to hear from representative samples of the community to understand public sentiments. Through the National Community Survey (formerly the National Citizen Survey), we are also able to see how our results compare to similar communities and how resident perceptions have changed over time.
The Mariposa County Issues Survey was commissioned in Summer 2018 to help the County better understand resident attitudes regarding an increase in Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) to improve fire response and prevention, law enforcement, roads and other priority services.
