Have you filled out your Census yet?

Did you know that the government funding for Sangamon County is based on the Census Count? 
  Will you please complete your census online today and encourage your friends and family to do the same.  It only takes about 10 minutes, and 10 minutes of your time will help our community for the next ten years in receiving funding we need –  funding for our local governments, law enforcement, our schools, our health department, and our roads.

Here is the 2020 Census link: https://my2020census.gov

Now that you have made it through the holiday weekend, it’s time to complete your 2020 Census. Divernon moved down a couple of notches from last week, 11th place back to 13th place.  Let’s keep the progress moving forward and see if we can move into the single digits!  We were so close last week.  Please ask your friends and family if they have filled out their 2020 Census yet.  If not, encourage them to do so, and if you haven’t, please take 10 minutes to help your community!

Congratulations again to Rochester and Sherman for maintaining the number 1 and 2 spots for the county!  They remain in the top ten for the entire State of Illinois!
