The public event to kickstart the 2020 Census in Sarpy County has been canceled.
Officials are canceling the event in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, also called Coronavirus.
The event was to be held March 23 at Bellevue University Main Campus and feature an appearance from Johnny “The Jet” Rodgers.
Though the kickoff event was canceled, the Census remains critically important because it helps our community obtain millions of dollars in federal funding for roads, schools, health care, housing and other services.
Do your part by visiting 2020census.gov and taking the Census. It takes about 10 minutes to complete.
For local updates on the Census, you can visit Facebook.com/SarpyCounts or contact Michelle Andahl, Executive Chair of the Sarpy County Complete Count Committee at [email protected] or 402-593-2170.
