Residents who have a post office box as an address did not get a Census form.
Jackson County GIS manager, Joel Logan, who is coordinating the local census effort, said the federal government inadvertently failed to send Census forms to people who have post office boxes.
“We are getting lots of phone calls and traffic because so many people have not gotten a Census forms,” Logan said. “It appears that if you have a post office box, you did not get a Census form. But there are also a lot of folks we heard from that did not get one at a normal mailing address too.”
County residents who did not get a form can pick one up at one of the three centers open in the county through April 19.
The centers with staff members available are open Mondays through Fridays at the following locations: Jackson County Tag Office from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Commerce City Hall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the Maysville Public Library from 9 a.m. to noon.
