From the U.S. Dept. of Commerce Office at the U.S. Census Bureau:
Please note that the US Census Bureau conducts many surveys, other than the 10-year census. The surveys are being conducted nationwide on an ongoing basis. They further advised that each employee will have an official identification card with employee name, picture and expiration date. These employees may also be in possession of government-issued laptop computers, with a Census Bureau logo on top and a black canvas bag with the Census Bureau logo.
As always, the Village encourages all residents to ask solicitors to see their identification prior to conducting any business with them and to report any solicitor concerns to the non-emergency number at 815-467-2112.
