Starting in 1790, and every 10 years since, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the United States.  Responding to the census affects the amount of funding Winfield receives, your representation in government, and planning for our community.

 Beginning in mid-March, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census.  Once you receive it, you can respond online, by phone, or by mail.  In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.

When completing the census, you should count everyone who is living in your household on April 1, 2020.  Your answers are confidential.  You can learn more about the 2020 Census by visiting 2020census.gov

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

Swimming pools and beach vacations, waterskiing at the lake and rafting on the river, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating, wake boarding, tubing, jet skiing, snorkeling, sailing, surfing, and swimming - when it's summertime and the mercury is on the rise, there is nowhere we'd rather be than in the water! North America’s lakes, rivers, and seas are oases of beauty and respite from the summer sun, so it’s no surprise that swimming is summer’s number one pastime. But as you enjoy the season's final days, please make water safety your first priority. Swimming cools us off and keeps us fit, but it can also be dangerous. Drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children aged 1-4, and it's the number two cause of unintentional death among those aged 5-24. A moment of distraction can be fatal, so please take great care to keep yourself and your loved ones safe in the water.
