HAMILTON - Keith Jones, executive director of the Northwest Alabama Council of Local Governments (NACOLG), met with local leaders to discuss planning for the upcoming 2020 Census at Hamilton City Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 9.
In attendance were Hamilton Mayor Bob Page, Ramp School of Ministry (RSM) Director Samuel Bentley, NACOLG Regional Planner Robert Cooper, NACOLG Transportation Planner Ryan Hayse and Hamilton Attorney Scott Hunt.
“It’s important that some of the groups that have not been counted in the past were the elderly who live in apartment complexes and schools and colleges,” stated Jones.
“We encourage the City of Hamilton to come up with a Census count committee; to include (RSM) and include some of the leaders in the community. (Include) religious leaders, young professionals and some of the seniors as a part of the committee to plan and talk about, over the next few months, the importance of the Census.”
