After spending $60,000 for a survey to ascertain whether the Vallejo community will support a possible bond this November, the Vallejo school board is set to receive the results during its meeting Wednesday night.
Last November, the board approved a contract for $26,500 with Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates firm (FM3) to conduct 400 public opinion interviews regarding a possible bond. The contract also allowed a subcontractor, Lew Edwards Group, to conduct information services in tandem with the bond survey. The subcontractor was paid $32,000 for its work.
The board hired FM3 to conduct a similar survey in June 2013 regarding a potential bond measure. About 62 percent surveyed in 2013 said they would support a school bond measure, according to a presentation given to the board.
