RIO RANCHO, N.M. — With a 23 percent return rate, some Rio Ranchoans are wondering if the money spent on the 2015 city survey was money well spent.
“With a survey sent to only 2,200 residents and a return of 491, less than 25%, it hardly ranks as an accurate representation of how people feel about living in the city of vision,” Patricia Hackney posted on the Rio Rancho Observer’s website, rrobserver.com. “How much money was spent on this?”
It was $17,000, according to Mayor Gregg Hull, and he said it was worth every penny.
“It gives us a clear understanding of what citizens are looking for,” Hull said. “It’s no surprise roads topped the issues.”
