Shape Your Future: United States Census 2020

Can We Count on You?
Can we count on you or more accurately can we count you? Beginning in March you will receive information from the US Census Bureau about completing the 2020 Census. Retuning this survey is vitally important to the future of Hobart. The data collected during the 2020 census will used to determine how the $685 billion (yes, billion) dollars are distributed to states, cities and towns. Each person that is overlooked during the census can cost a community up to $27,000 per year for ten years.
That makes completing the 2020 Census crucial to communities across our area. So much so that Merrillville Town Council President, Rick Bella, came to the February 5th Hobart City Council Meeting to throw out the Complete Count Challenge. He told our City Council that Hobart would not be able to beat Merrillville in getting a higher percentage of response to the March census notices. Mayor Brian Snedecor of course reminded him that Hobart never loses to Merrillville as he accepted the challenge.
That is why we ask, “Can we count on you?” Will you help us in our challenge by answering your census on or after April 1st. The great thing is for the first time ever you have 3 ways to respond. You will receive a mailer from the Census Bureau during the month of March which will tell you how to answer by phone, internet or mail. Your answers are protected by law and cannot be shared with any other government agency. Your information will be sealed and secured by the US Census Bureau for 70 years under penalty of law. Your answers are safe, secure and important!
We want to count on you to help in our efforts to insure a bright future for the City of Hobart,
(and beat Merrillville, too)
