Census Volunteers Needed
Get ready for the 2020 Census! The City has been awarded a grant to help get an accurate census count and is looking for volunteers to help reach everyone in our community, especially those who are traditionally hard to reach during the Census process. We are looking for volunteer help primarily between March and May. Volunteer through Sign Up Genius.
Census data, collected only every 10 years, determines:
- Congressional representation
- How funds are spent on things like roads, schools, and hospitals
- Redistricting of your city, county, state, and federal political boundaries
- Plus dozens of other of community benefits (PDF) covering national, regional, state and local entities. The Census Bureau website offers a number of references, including "The Census at a Glance (PDF)."
