DENISON, Tex. -- Several people in Denison want city residents input on a new library. The Denison Library Board put out a survey on Denison water bills, asking residents what features they would like to see in a new building.

But another group of residents say the survey does not ask enough questions, like where it should be and if a person would support a bond election.

Library officials say they wanted to keep the city survey short, but welcome public input.

They also plan to hold a bond election in November.

"We’d like to make sure that we're calling an election that would be successful and that something the voters want. There’s no need to go through the experience of having an election unless we are pretty confident that we have something that would fulfill the needs of the city," says Alvin Bailey at the Denison Public Library.

The city survey is open until the end of this week.

Here are links to both surveys:

    Redneck Woman, was that your trailer on fire last week? Sherman has it's own demons, you better start with your Mayor. He does a real good job of keeping the facts from HIS citizens.

    Sean...don't keep fooling yourself - you really are NOT part of the folks who make the real decisions for Denison. You can keep telling yourself that, but it simply is not true. The real players actually believe in Denison and it's potential, you and your friends on the other hand sound like wannabes to me.

    Sean, can you vote in the Denison elections? If not, your opinion is worthless to the citizens and City of Denison. You are an outsider with no rights. Of course folks with money control the town, government, etc. (like every other town and state). The folks with the money have the means and the time to dedicate themselves. DUH! I find it hard to believe you are friends of anyone with any real significance in Denison because most of them would not be caught dead with someone who has diarrhea of the mouth. And I don’t care what you say – every person that runs for office has one personal agenda item or another. Look at the two guys (Hoover & Phillips) running for office now. Ever since the old high school (a real dump) was torn down their whole group has personal agendas. They went so far as to ask residents of Denison to boycott business that supported the demolition. The attacked every board and public agency whether they were involved or not. When that got them no where – their they go running for City Council. Now, you can’t tell me they do not have a personal agenda to get on City Council. Besides the bleeding hearts got McClure on there what more can they ask for.

    Sean, I don't know you, but I like you- man. The money controls the town. You'd never know it by looking though. They're turning on themselves. Denison has sooo much going for it historically. It's going to waste away. Got to clean itself up. Remodel, refurbish, etc. The town sounds so divided. Sherman is too. The west and the east side are very divided. Of course the west siders deny it.

    Maybe the new library will have a large picture book section so most of the "save the old highschool" folks can use it. Green eggs & ham - Sam I am!

    You got to clean up your town. It's that simple. Denison seems to be like one of those brain eating ameobas...You want to cure it , but it keeps turning on itself. Denison was a great city in it's day. My ancestors help found it. But, there's no way I'd move there now. Besides, ya'll ain't got no Target store.
