Staff circulated a survey (Appendix A) to all property owners with a FT assessment to determine if the deferral was still wanted. 551 surveys were mailed on November 25th with a requested return date of December 22, 2011. Staff received 331 responses or 60%. 52% of respondents wanted to continue the deferral program and 48% wanted to discontinue/no preference to the program.
