Poll Time (16/5/17)

Our question on what one service would a person want brought to Deniliquin was as most readers know an unexpected success and so after going through the four most popular selections that we haven’t already covered, we are asking four additional questions based on the next popular four selections.

The four questions up for polling are the following;

1. Does Deniliquin need a Kmart?
2. Does Deniliquin need Natural Gas?
3. Does Deniliquin need a Dog Park?
4. Deniliquin Swim Centre needs……..

The poll questions can be found on the right hand side for computer users and on the bottom for those who use phones or tablets.

Readers can check up on results every morning for the first week in our morning news report on FB.

Polls close on May 29 and we will have the results listed in the new edition of Deni Speaks on that same day.

Poll Time (2/5/17)

Our question on what one service would a person want brought to Deniliquin was an unexpected success and so we have chosen four of the most talked about points and are putting them to vote to see just how interested the people are.

The four questions up for polling are the following;

1. Would you use a Deniliquin to Echuca train service?
2. Should Deniliquin have an Indoor Play Centre?
3. Would you use an hourly Deni to Echuca bus service?
4. How do you rate the local roads?

The poll questions can be found on the right hand side for computer users and on the bottom for those who use phones or tablets.

Readers can check up on results every morning for the first week in our morning news report on FB.

Polls close on May 14 and we will have the results listed in the new edition of Deni Speaks on that same day.

Poll Time (20/4/17)

We have three new poll questions on our website for readers to consider for the next two weeks and they are the following;

  1. Should Deniliquin have an Easter Parade in 2018?
  2. Is late night Dog Barking becoming excessive?
  3. What are your thoughts on current Council Rates?

The first question is being asked after one of us went to Bendigo and watched their Parade and wondered if it would work again in Deniliquin and with the Deni Fest happening it could make things bigger.

The second question is asked because we all see reports of dogs barking in town a lot on social media and now we are reading reports of barking in the early AM hours and when that happens you know there is a potential problem.

It is a tricky question because Deniliquin has lanes and people move around all the time and it is natural for dogs to bark at things that move but excessive barking appears to be on the rise and so we are finding out if it is a problem or it is not.

The third is a revisit on a hot topic from last year and that is Council Rates, we are asking if the Council rates are currently considered to be either too generous, just right or are too high.

Polls are on the right hand side of the website for PC users and on the bottom for mobile users and can be answered at any time between now and May 1.

Poll Time (3/4/17)

We have three new poll questions on our website for readers to consider for the next two weeks and they are the following;

  1. Should the Gun Laws be loosened?
  2. Should the ERC establish a Recycling program ASAP?
  3. Do we need more Police Officers in Deniliquin?

The first question is one that has been debated within DNS for some time, there are different opinions on the subject but we feel the question being asked has plenty of possibilities to suit as many people as possible.

We ask that people do not make thoughts personal in written comments, all have a right to an opinion but everyone also has the right to not be belittled or insulted because of their opinion.

It should be noted that all yes votes would follow the current criteria concerning being allowed to own certain guns (criminal record checks, mental health checks etc.)

Multiple choice is available for this question in case a person agrees to two or three of the four ‘Yes’ proposals and doesn’t want to say yes to all four or answer ‘No’ to the question.

The second question is to ask if a recycling program should be established ASAP to take advantage of Deniliquin’s mass of recyclable material as well as the material scattered throughout the ERC.

The third question is asking if Deniliquin needs more Police Officers, there are concerns that crime is growing and we want to know if people believe that more Police are needed to ensure the safety of residents as well as enforcing the law (rubbish dumping, parking where you are not supposed to, other laws).

Poll questions are on the right hand side of this website and are scheduled to be changed on April 17.
