A recent survey conducted by the Sonoran Institute revealed that of 300 Sheridan County residents polled, 71% would favor spending 1-Cent funds on Parks, Trails and Conservation projects. The Sonoran report concluded by saying that “even when voters hear rationales on both sides of whether or not to include these purposes for funding, voters squarely side with the idea that it is important to protect these areas and do not view them as something that can be postponed.”
The survey results prompted this week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question: “Are you more likely to support the continuation of the Optional 1-Cent Sales Tax if conservation, parks, & trails are included?”
