Preparation underway for 2020 Census
February 27, 2020
County Commissioner Dean Kinzer reported to the commissioners Monday morning on a 2020 Census session he attended this past week.
He said this session covered details related to the upcoming census and the importance of the numbers collected.
“It is constitutional and required every 10 years,” Kinzer said. “About $675 billion are distributed to schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs such as WIC and SNAP based on Census numbers.”
Kinzer added this is why this is so important everybody gets counted as this could mean thousands of dollars to the area.
