County Commissioners Establish the Geauga County Complete Count Committee
On December 10, 2019, the Geauga County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to form the Geauga County Complete Count Committee, which marks a very important moment for Geauga County residents. Ensuring everyone is counted once, and only once, and in the right place is the hallmark of the 2020 Decennial Census. Census data is what helps to drive over $675 billion dollars in federal funding every year, for the next ten years. That is funding for our roads, bridges and infrastructure, our Congressional districts and voting boundaries; programs for infants through seniors; and services we all rely upon, such as our police, EMS, and fire to name a few. Census data is what business leaders rely upon to determine if they should stay, go, or grow. It is a great testament to the residents of Geauga County of their importance by county government and ensure the most complete and accurate count for Geauga County.
