ALL RESIDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURGED TO COMPLETE THE 2020 CENSUS PAPERWORK THAT YOU RECEIVE IN THE MAIL.  The count that is received through the census does help our community with future finances that are passed down from federal and state, as many times the payments are based on a city's population.  If you need assistance, please contact the number on the census paperwork or call city hall. Thank you for your cooperation with the census.
