Jeffco Commission encourages census completion

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Jefferson County commissioners are making a strong pitch for filling out your census forms.

Commission President Bettye Fine Collins says the county has to do more to see that Jefferson County taxpayers return their census forms.

The information is critical in receiving federal funding. Collins says that money has been used in the past to build senior citizen facilities and fire stations in the county.
