Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau is responsible for conducting the nationwide census. The next census will be taken in 2020.
An accurate count of every individual is the goal of every census, since the results of the count can have a major impact on communities. The results can determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, and help to plan roads, schools, and hospitals.
Most important to the residents of Belleville, this census count will determine the amount of income tax, use tax, and motor fuel tax our city will receive from the state. These taxes are some of our largest sources of funds to pay for public safety and other important public services.
Please take the time to complete the census form when you receive it in the mail. If residents are not included in this census count for Belleville, it will mean less money from the state to help pay for Belleville services for the next 10 years!
