During their March 5 meeting, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners proclaimed April 1 as Census Day for Forsyth County.
The Board of Commissioners stress it is vital that all households in Forsyth County complete and submit a census form because every resident of our community counts and deserves to be counted. The census determines how the federal government distributes $400 billion in funding, including an estimated $16 billion for critical community services, housing, transportation, healthcare, economic development, and other needs and services in Georgia. Census data also ensures fair Congressional representation by determining how many elected congressional representatives and congressional districts each state will have. The Board of Commissioners encourages every resident to accurately complete the census questionnaire on-line, over the telephone or promptly return it by mail.
