Help Eagan Set a National Record

If Eagan makes its goal of 1,000 respondents for its cable and local media survey, those who participated could win a prize.

Eagan is very close to reaching its goal of 1,000 respondents to its community survey on cable and local media. The survey asks residents for feedback on their expectations for community media and their customer service experience with cable provider Comcast.

Now Eagan is hoping to surpass its original goal of 1,000 respondents and set the "national record response for residents indicating what they want and expect of their cable provider," according to the city.*

“Once people understand that, legally, we can only negotiate with a cable provider based on public feedback, they get it," said Eagan Communications Director Tom Garrison in a statement. "If we can get just 250 more responses between now and Thursday... our city will demonstrate a public response stronger than even Arlington County, Virginia with a population three and one half times larger than Eagan’s.”

The city invites cable subscribers and non-subscribers to take the survey as part of Eagan's cable franchise renewal process.

Also, if Eagan reaches 1,000 respondents by Dec. 19, survey participants will be entered into a random drawing to win a Family Fun Gift Pack to favorite Eagan locations, such as Cascade Bay, the Eagan Community Center and the Civic Arena. The "thank you" gift from the city is valued at $200.

Submit your name and email address at the end of the survey to participate in the drawing. The winner will be notified by email by the end of the year.
