Many Marion County residents have already received their census forms, and those who haven’t should see their packet in the mail in the near future. Knoxville City Manager Dick Schrad says that the form consists of about 10 questions and should take around 10 minutes to complete, but has a big impact on the city and future projects. Pella City Administrator Mike Nardini, adds that completing the census is important because it helps city departments judge service level demands, and also provides information that is taken into consideration when state and federal revenues are distributed.
