Just a reminder to everyone to please avoid flushing anything but toilet paper down your sewer system. Failing to do so may cause backup issues in the main line as well as costly sewer repairs for homeowners.

The City of Grimes reminds you to fill out your census questionnaire.  It is quick questionnaire that especially in light of recent events is more than ever important to the City. 

The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for all communities. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Visit our Census page for news and
information regarding the upcoming 2020 US Census.
