Awareness Month and Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack is reminding Clarkstown
residents to complete and mail back the 2010 census form. Today, the U.S. Census Bureau distributed the

“The 2010 Census is critically
important to the future of Clarkstown,” said Supervisor Gromack.“The data collected will determine funding
for local services and our representation at all levels of government.”

to collaborate with the U.S. Census Bureau to help ensure a full and accurate
count in 2010.The Town also arranged
for Census representatives to provide information at a number of events and
meetings throughout the town, including senior clubs and civic associations.
The Census Bureau has estimated
that it will take ten minutes to complete the form.Starting on May 1, 2010 the Census Bureau
will dispatch Census Representatives to those households that have not returned
their questionnaire by mail.If you do
not receive a questionnaire in the mail please contact the Town Clerk’s Office
by calling 639-2010 or stopping by at 10 Maple Avenue, New City.
