Macon-Bibb County to hold census celebration March 14



The U.S. Census Bureau announced the start of address canvassing, the first major field operation of the 2020 Census in August 2019.

This week is the first phase of collecting data for the 2020 U.S. Census. Macon-Bibb County residents who receive a Census postcard in the mail can start filling out their form to be counted. This year the form can be filled out by phone, email or online.

The public affairs office of Macon-Bibb County has held information events about the 2020 Census to educate the public on why being counted in the Census matters. The county, along with the Hispanic newspaper, Que Pasa, will hold a Census celebration event on Saturday, March 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Smiley’s Flea Market on Hawkinsville Rd.
