MEANDER Valley residents are more satisfied with their council than many others across the state.
Residents who responded to the community satisfaction survey gave the Meander Valley Council an average 74 per cent overall score, compared to the overall state average of 68 per cent.
Residents also gave the council higher ratings than the state average for value for money (66 per cent to 60 per cent), roads, footpaths and traffic (71 per cent to 63 per cent) and dealing with inquires (83 per cent to 77 per cent).
Meander Valley Mayor Craig Perkins said he was pleased with the results and they showed the council fared well across the majority of areas.
"The survey provides us with good feedback on how we are tracking by comparison with other councils across Tasmania," Cr Perkins said.
"But importantly our residents provide us with excellent feedback on the areas which we can improve on in the future."
The Meander Valley Council commissioned Enterprise Marketing and Research Services to conduct the survey of 350 residents in May and June.
Councillor Ian Howard said he found the satisfaction with arts and entertainment activities and special event statistic interesting.
The category came in as the least satisfying in the council's recreation and cultural facility programs, despite the area hosting the Tasmanian Craft Fair and other arts-based events.
It rated at just 62 per cent, with more residents satisfied with the region's parks and playgrounds (82per cent) and art and entertainment facilities (64 per cent).
