St. Louis County is once again asking some residents how they feel about life in the Northland and what they think of their county government and services.

About 2,100 households in the county, picked at random, will receive the survey in the mail in the near future and they are asked to fill it out and send it in.

Questions will ask what they like and don't like about living in the county, what services they value most (law enforcement, snow plowing, etc.) and how well they think the county is delivering those services.

The county says it uses the answers to help set priorities and guide decisions on budgets and policy. Results will be made public this spring.

St. Louis County is working with Dakota, Olmsted, Scott and Washington counties to produce the survey, which is being conducted by the National Research Center, Inc. The county conducted similar surveys in 2007, 2011 and 2013. In the past surveys, residents praised the outdoor recreational opportunities in the region and gave kudos to law enforcement agencies but lamented the lack of job opportunities for young people and said they don't know much about county government in general.
