Portions of Joliet to undergo special census
A special Census will be conducted within a portion of the City of Joliet in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau.
The census will focus mainly on the westernmost portion of the city where Joliet has experienced the most growth since 2010. The data will be collected during the late summer.
Documentation of an increase in population allows for Joliet to receive more funding from the State of Illinois to cover the costs of services from police, public works, and fire departments.
The Census Bureau is collaborating with the city to recruit participants to collect census information. The applicants must be at least 18 years old, pass both a basic skills test and a criminal background check, be able to work during the day, evenings and weekend and must work at least 25 hours every week. The workers will serve for about one month once the census begins, and will make approximately $11.99 to $16.49 hourly.
The U. S. Census Bureau is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Applications can be picked up at Human Resources, City of Joliet, 150 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, Illinois, or at the website: www.cityofjoliet.info/departments/human-resources.
