Website poll provides some interesting responses

As part of the revamped website of the Sylvan Lake News we’ve been polling people on different questions over the past couple of months.

As part of the revamped website of the Sylvan Lake News we’ve been polling people on different questions over the past couple of months.

While unscientific (due partially to the low sample number), some of the answers are about what we’d expect to hear while others are completely the opposite.

Here’s some of the past questions and the answers. Take a look each week and add your opinion to the mix. And while you’re at it ‘like’ us on Facebook and see some of our unpublished pictures or breaking news that will be covered in more detail in our weekly edition.

Will the NHL owners’ lockout of players affect you? Yes 20%, No 80%.

Do you think the town should plan a new lighthouse or similar landmark to replace the current lighthouse which will be demolished this fall? Yes 73%, No 26%.

Do you support efforts to have the intersection of Highways 11 and 781 reopened with lights or something else that would allow all way traffic? Yes 86%, No 14%.

Have you enjoyed the summer weather in Sylvan Lake’s parks yet? (asked in mid-July) Yes 56%, No 44%.

Are you going to come and see the Stanley Cup when it’s in downtown Sylvan Lake on July 18? Yes 40%, No 60%.

Are you supportive of the stance taken by Sylvan Lake councillors to require developers to protect mature tree stands when new subdivisions are created? Yes 91%, No 9%.

Do you support the town’s annual expenditure for fireworks displays four times a year? Yes 81%, No 19%.

Should the town and summer villages pay the cost to dredge the lake’s outlet creek to lower the lake water level? Yes 70%, No 30%.

Visit our ‘new and improved’ website and explore what we’ve got. If you’re looking for the complete edition of either the newspaper or our Discover Sylvan Lake magazine click on the heading ‘eEdition’ in the upper right hand corner.

We’d love to hear your comments and suggestions for further improvements.

As well, if you’ve got a burning question you think should be asked of the community send it to editor@sylvanlakenews.com and we’ll consider it for the weekly poll.
