SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A recent poll of 400 Salt Lake City voters shows the majority support a $125 million bond to fund a new public safety complex.
Voters will decide in November whether to approve Proposition 1 to fund construction of a new police, fire and emergency operations center. The bond would increase the annual property tax bill on the average home by $75, or about $6.25 per month.
Polling for the city by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin & Associates found 69 percent of respondents said they support, or would likely support, the bond proposal. Just 29 percent of respondents said they would likely oppose it.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
In 2007, voters rejected a $192 million bond for a public safety complex by a few hundred votes.
