LUKE BACKSTRAND - Service Manager MN DLR #22109 \\; Public support for notices in newspapers at 90 percent Nine out of 10 Minnesota adults, or 90 percent, believe that cities, coun- ties, townships and school boards should be required to publish public notices in newspapers. Of those adults, 92 percent believe that keeping the public informed of such government activities is a worth- while expenditure of funds. These are two of the findings from a July 2003 survey of 70t randomly selected adults in Minnesota conduct- ed for the Minnesota Newspaper Foundation (MNF). Public notices or "'legals" as they are sometimes known, include minutes or summaries of meetings held by public bodies like school and county boards or city councils. These postings tell readers, for example, what a school district's bud- get is, whether the property taxes will increase or if a neighborhood is being rezoned. "Clearly, an overwhelming number of people believe that public notices in newspapers hold public officials and bodies accountable for their actions," said Renee McGivern, executive director of the MNE The survey also showed that 88 percent of Minnesota adults read pub- lic notices in their local newspapers either regularly or sometimes, and 72 percent of them rated the continued publishing of public notices in news- papers as very important or important. The July survey, conducted by A & A Research of Kalispell, Mont., has a margin of error of 3.9 percent. The Minnesota Newspaper Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides training to newspapers and education to the public about newspaper issues. This survey was funded by MNF donors and the Minnesota Newspaper Associations Freedom Fund.
