UPDATE: Sioux Falls School Board to release survey (Push Poll) tommorrow

UPDATE: I guess the media gets access to the survey results before the public does. READ HERE.

The results certainly are the result of a push poll. Still curious how many postcards were sent out. 3700 respondents.

This should be good, how does a (online) survey turnout when you don’t have a ‘undecided’ category? I guess we will find out;

Both the Community Survey Results and the Final Projects Selection for Bond Referendum were available on the district’s website this morning.

Strange, that they have now disappeared!

I fixed links. My fault.

I guess 83,000 postcards were sent out, about 4.5% return. Which isn’t bad, but for an unscientific online survey, not sure if you can hold much weight in it.

I responded to the survey. I also added comments. I wanted to know how much it would cost after each of the 10 years. It will cost more each year, much, much more after 10 years. They know it. I know it. This is a scam. I would think the argus would expose this. To this point? Crickets chirping.

From the survey.

I would support the recommendations as outlined by the task force, assuming a cost of $2 per month or $24 per year on the average home in Sioux Falls ($185,000 taxable valuation).

Strongly agree 58.2%
Agree. 30.6%
Disagree. 6.7%
Strongly disagree. 4.4%

Warren, this is the the issue that has be concerned as well. This increase + water/sewer + jail construction = expensive city to own a home in.

Growth for the sake of growth is what got us here in part.
