County officials are giving residents another week to weigh in one more than 100 proposed bond projects going before the Pima County Bond Commission later this year.

Response to the survey has been heavy, and officials say they decided to extend the deadline because there has been no apparent decline in the number of residents filling out the online questionnaire on a daily basis.

"With the pace of incoming responses still holding steady," wrote county spokeswoman Rhonda Bodfield, "the deadline has been extended to 11:30 p.m. on Friday, August 9."

The commission will be asked to make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors by the end of the year, whittling down a list of projects worth $1.2 billion down to $650 million. The board will then submit a finalized list to the voters next year, allowing them to decide whether to use taxpayer funds to, for example, build a new hippo enclosure at Reid Park Zoo.
