The City of Aspen produces an "annual report" of sorts, updating citizens on various projects and initiatives across city departments. The report is only available in electronic form for environmental and budgetary reasons.
Each year the City of Aspen also asks its citizens how things are going with a resident survey. The Aspen Citizen Survey serves as a consumer report card for Aspen by providing registered voters the opportunity to rate their satisfaction with the quality of life, local facilities and services, as well as satisfaction with local government.
Overall, voters gave high marks in 2011. The City of Aspen takes resident surveys seriously and uses the results to measure departmental performance.
