Ayres said he created the online survey to show that the park district board could have gotten the same community feedback without having to fill up the ballot with the three questions — leaving room for more pressing issues, such as a recall.
On Thursday morning, Ayres released some early results of the poll.
According to Ayres, the 195 responses include eight duplicate IP addresses — which could be the result of more than one person in a home using the same computer to fill out the survey.
"Now, this may be that two different people took the survey on the same computer or device, but to try and keep this as clean as possible, only one will be counted," Ayres said in an email to Patch. The data also doesn't track whether respondents live within the park district boundaries.
The results, so far, were as follows on Thursday morning:
- Should the Plainfield Park District issue permits for users of the districts' dog parks? Yes: 16.41 percent No: 83.59 percent
- Would you like the park district commissioners to investigate building a community center? Yes: 43.59 percent No: 56.41 percent
- Do you feel that term limits should be placed on the park district commissioners? Yes: 41.54 percent No: 58.46 percent
