The August meeting included guest speaker Sarah Bushore from the Census Bureau. The census helps communities get their fair share of hundreds of billions spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs. Now through mid-October, Census workers will be walking through some neighborhoods to verify addresses that need to be counted. They will knock on doors and ask a few simple questions to verify the address and any additional living quarters on the property. They will have badges and briefcases indicating their affiliation with the bureau, and explain the purpose of their visit. The public is free to also ask for a picture ID from another source to confirm their identity. The bureau was able to verify 65% of addresses using satellite imagery nationwide. To find out if your address is in the remaining 35%, check out http://bit.ly/2yV9jcj.
