CHICKAMAUGA: Census-return rates for our area

CHICKAMAUGA: Census-return rates for our area

April 17th, 2010 by Jim Powell in Community Chicka ross

The mail-back rates of the U.S. Census forms for our area as of April 13 are:

Georgia: 63 percent

Walker County: 66 percent

Lookout Mountain, Ga.: 71 percent

Chickamauga: 69 percent

LaFayette: 65 percent

Rossville: 62 percent

If you haven't mailed back your 2010 census form, you can still mail them in. Households that return their forms after Friday, April 16, may still be visited by census workers, who begin going door-to-door to collect census responses on May 1.

Be counted, it's important for the future.

Downtown Chickamauga is hosting a Sidewalk Sale today from 9 a.m.-until. Local businesses and individuals will be offering all sorts of items, from arts and crafts to clothing to food to you-name-it.
