(Monticello) – County Manager David P Fanslau issued the following statement on the 2010 census process: “Sullivan County residents are reminded to be counted on Thursday, April 1, 2010, by completing the forms for the 2010 census from the federal government,” said Fanslau.
“It is essential that ALL Sullivan County residents are counted in the 2010 census. The census data is used to determine eligibility for grants from the federal government, appropriate representation in the U.S. Congress, and a host of other uses that will benefit Sullivan County for the next decade,” said Fanslau.
“The failure to be counted in the 2010 census will shortchange Sullivan County, and may be the difference in whether federal funding is received in Sullivan County, or sent elsewhere in New York State or the country,” added Fanslau. “The 2010 census forms require that all persons are counted at the address where they reside as of April 1, 2010. On behalf of the County Legislature, I implore each and every resident to complete and return the 2010 census forms that they have received as soon as possible,” concluded Fanslau.
