In The Spotlight

Census 2020

While the Township residents have overwhelmingly responded to the Census at a rate of 85.9% as of 8/23/20, that still leaves approximately 14% of the Township population that has not completed the questionaire.  Census workers will be going door to door in an attempt to capture the missing households.  The last day for participation in the census is October 31, 2020.  

The Census count impacts the Township in the State Revenue received, our representation in the House of Representatives as well as infrastructure funding.  It's important to make sure everyone is counted appropriately!
