2020 Census

   

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO ABOUT THE CENSUS

You should receive a post card in early March with the code information assigned to your residence. 

1. You can call the number on the card and complete the census survey by telephone

 (13 different languages available)

2. You can complete the survey online

3. You can request that a survey be mailed to you.

If you choose to complete the survey online and need access to a computer or need assistance with the online survey, you may contact Sherilyn Speed at 409-893-1301. She will make an appointment to have a computer available for your use at City Hall and or an appointment for someone to assist you with the online application. Please call 1-800-354-7271 if you do not receive the post card.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO COMPLETE THE CENSUS SURVEY. IT IS URGENT THAT ALL OF US ARE COUNTED. IF YOU DO NOT RESPOND TO ONE OF THE OPTIONS LISTED ABOVE, A CENSUS WORKER WILL COME TO OUR HOMES SOMETIME THIS SUMMER


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Sherilyn Speed, Chairperson for Bevil Oaks 2020 Census, has contacted the City requesting that we assist her in finding volunteers to help her explain the 2020 Census process to our citizens. Every household needs to be contacted and the more trained volunteers she has the easier the job will be for all. The Census Bureau will have paid workers taking the census. Our job as community volunteers is very simple. We are to become knowledgeable of information that the paid census workers will be asking for when they make their visit; why they need the information; and, how giving accurate information can benefit not only the individual but our community and region as a whole. We will then contact our citizens and explain this to them in a way that they can understand and be able to answer their questions. So, when the census workers visit, they will be comfortable giving them the information requested. Bevil Oaks has evolved into quite a diverse community. Therefore, it is urgent that we have as many bi-lingual volunteers as possible. 

If you can help us with this very important project, please contact Sherilyn Speed at 409-893-1301. 

She will be conducting training sessions in the very near future and needs to get her team organized just as soon as possible.
