2020 Census

Why is it so important to send in your census?

  • Sales Tax is divided by Population within the County. Sales Tax funds about 45% of our revenues for the Town’s budget

  • When floods, tornadoes or earthquakes hit, the census tells rescuers how many people will need their help
  • The 2020 census will determine congressional representation
  • Forecasting future housing needs for both young and elderly adults
  • Setting community goals
