PADUCAH, Ky. - Leaders in one local city are getting feedback from some of the people who elected them to serve.

Wednesday, Paducah, Kentucky's mayor, commissioners and city directors gathered to view the results of a survey by the National Research Center.

Earlier this year, the NRC mailed the survey to 1,200 randomly selected Paducah households.

Here are some of the results.

63-percent of those who responded rated quality of life in the city as "excellent" or "good."

A majority said they planned on staying in Paducah for the next five years.

People also gave high marks to the city's fire department and parks system.

Areas that received less favorable ratings included street repair, economic development and code enforcement.
