THE 2012 Ballarat City Council election will be held on October 27, ushering in a new era of local governance.
The Courier is asking readers to tell us how they believed the current council has performed since the last election in 2008 and to identify the big issues facing the next council.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It aims to provide a snapshot of ratepayer sentiment in the lead-up to the election.
The results will be published online and in the print edition early next month.
