Our Government > TownStat > TownStat


The trend in government of employing a Performance Measurement and Management system to improve resource and personnel management has been adopted by North Hempstead. Through the management strategy known locally as TownStat, Town officials are monitoring the efficiency and effectiveness of how we address constituents’ concerns. By tracking and reporting on our performance, and in turn making operational adjustments based on reliable data, we can make better decisions with respect to personnel, planning and budgeting, while also setting realistic goals and expectations for those of us both inside and outside Town Hall.

 TownStat has helped us establish a new level of objective accountability to North Hempstead residents. Among other things, we have improved the effectiveness of the Town’s 311 Call Center, the primary conduit between the Town and our constituents. In addition, we have shed light on how well we serve you and where to make improvements. TownStat, for example, can be used to give council members a snapshot of concerns that surface in their individual districts so they can better prioritize outreach efforts.
