NOTES from the Commissioners:

Growth Policy Review Draft

Census 2020

It may seem early to think about it but a very important time is approaching. The U.S. census is done every ten years and the time is now approaching us.

The census is used in various ways which effects our state, county, and many individuals. Each person recorded in our state amounts to almost two thousand dollars per year for the next ten years. That’s twenty thousand dollars per person! This money comes to the state for various programs which we will get in to in more depth as time goes on.

The Rosebud County Commissioners are interested in forming a Complete Count Committee. This committee will be formed to help inform the public about the implications the census does have, and to promote public service announcements and inform the public about the census.

Anyone interested in volunteering to be on this committee please let the Rosebud County Commissioners know! It will not be very demanding but your ideas are valued. You may contact us at 346-2251, or stop by the courthouse.
