County gearing up for Census

LAWRENCEVILLE -- With Census forms arriving in the mail to hundreds of thousands of Gwinnettians, the county government has set aside many local government facilities to assist both the Census and the citizens.

Local community centers, health clinics, libraries and fire stations are all places where Census information can be found.

Gwinnett leaders have partnered with the federal government to ensure a complete count in 2010. The forms are due April 1.

Every 10 years, the Census is used to determine representatives in Congress and local government and funding on issues on health services and other grants.
