2020 Census   

2020 is a census year! The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.

The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will receive in the U.S. House of Representatives. The results are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Lions Park Ice Rink 

Parks staff has set up and partially filled the Ice Rink at Lions Park. Once there is a week of consistent temperature needed to create a safe base of ice, the park will be ready to use for skating. When the red flag is up, it signifies that the rink is not ready for skating.
Once the green flag is put up, the rink will be safe for use.
