SHARE Y. SURVEY SAYS VOTERS FAVOR OREM ROAD BOND

According to a survey taken by Brigham Young University students, Orem voters would approve the city's $10.65 million road bond request if the election were held today.

Conducting a random telephone poll of Orem residents, graduate students for Dr. Gloria Wheeler's statistics class found that 61 percent of those surveyed favored the bond.Just under 22 percent were against the bond. Seventeen percent were undecided.

More voters in south Orem are for the bond as are more renters than homeowners. The road bond provides for more improvements in the south area than in the north, and homeowners would see an increase in property taxes of $3-$6 a month for the next 20 years.

More women favor the bond than men.
