Census results can affect funding for the City’s infrastructure and public safety projects, #recountnelsonville

The census count matters because,

  • Less population results in less money which can affect the City’s operating budget.
  • State grants for basic infrastructure like water, sewer and streets are based on population.
  • Nelsonville relies heavily on grants to fund infrastructure projects.
  • Grants for public safety projects can also associated to the City’s population count.
