Teresa will be at the Community Room (located in Town Hall) on Wednesday, September 18th from 3pm-6pm to assist with applications and answer questions about the employment positions available with the U.S. Census Bureau. The Bureau is currently hiring for the 2020 Census. The positions are temporary full-time and part-time with varying pay ranges. For Census Takers, the pay starts at $15.00/hour.
 
By working for the Census Bureau, individuals can help make the 2020 Census an accurate and complete count. The count happens every 10 years with the decennial census, which influences how more than $675 billion from more than 100 federal programs are distributed to states and localities each year.
 
Here’s some of what the census numbers effect:
• Medicaid.
• School lunch programs.
• Community development grants. 
• Road and school construction.
• Medical services.
• Business locations.
 
Have questions and can’t wait until Wednesday, September 18th?
