Month remaining for Mt. Juliet special census

About a month remains for Mt. Juliet residents to submit information for the city’s special census with the hope of increasing the city’s share of Tennessee-shared tax dollars.

State-shared tax revenues are distributed to Tennessee cities based on population.

Mt. Juliet currently receives state-shared tax dollars based on the population from the city’s special census in 2015, which revealed a population of 28,159, nearly 4,000 more residents than the 2010 census.

Mt. Juliet leaders said the city has experienced tremendous growth since the 2015 census, and the next federal census is not scheduled until 2020. Leaders said additional income from the special census could help the city improve roads, parks, greenways, sidewalks, public safety, public works and recruit new business, both in industrial and retail.

Information needed to complete the census includes address and the first and last name of everyone living in the household, including anyone who lives away from the home, such as college students or military personnel.

Information collected will be kept confidential and only used by the city for the special census. Information will not be shared, sold, rented or given to any other entity or business.

Residents who complete their portion of online will qualify for a $50 gift certificate in a drawing to be held after the Nov. 15 online deadline.

Postage-paid mail will be sent to residents who do not complete their portion online. Providing information online or by mail before Nov. 15 will eliminate contact from a door-to-door special census representative.

Completed forms may also be returned to the Mt. Juliet City Hall sewer billing department at 2425 N. Mt. Juliet Road.
