Body

RECOMMENDATION

Adopt the Resolution establishing the City of Coolidge's participation in the 2020 Census Complete Count Committee.

 

DISCUSSION

The United States Constitution requires a Census of the population of our nation every ten years with Census information used to determine how many representatives the State of Arizona has in the United States House of Representatives and is also used to determine districts in our State legislature and local government bodies. 

 

Having an accurate and complete Census count is important to the City of Coolidge in determining Federal and State aids and grants, economic development, housing assistance, transportation improvements and many other uses. 

 

To ensure an accurate count, Complete Count Committees exist to plan and implement locally-based outreach campaigns that raise awareness of the Census and are comprised of trusted voices in the community. 

 

FISCAL IMPACT

An accurate count will ensure that the City of Coolidge is funded at correct levels.
