The town of Stallings finalized their town survey plans Monday, April 25, voting to approve the final version of the document. The survey will be sent to every household in Stallings. Results from the survey will help the council make some of their upcoming decisions. The community will be asked a range of questions on subjects dealing with issues such as the performance of individual town departments, the beautification of the town and the economic development of Stallings. The town hired University of North Carolina at Charlotte professor Dr. Paul Friday to conduct and administer the survey, at a cost of $8,361. Friday’s bid was almost $1900 cheaper than the next lowest, Bear Strategies and almost $3100 less than Insight Research.
In nearby Indian Trail, a seven page survey was mailed to 1800 households, large enough to qualify as a random sample in the town of more than 30,000 people. Out of those, 406 households completed the study.
