The U.S. Census Bureau is looking for a few good people to work in the 2010 Census and at least one Chiefland official is hoping the count gets done accurately.
Project and Finance Director Laurie Copeland says Chiefland’s population in the 2000 Census fell two people short of qualifying for more federal grant money.
“We’re two recorded people between the 650,000 category and 700,000 category” for Community Development Block Grant, she said.
“The federal government is using the 2000 data. . . and there is no way to change it.”
