Dear Piperton Resident:
The City of Piperton is conducting a Special Census to update the population count reported by the 2010 Federal Census. In 2010 the Federal Census certified Piperton’s population count at 1,445. The City’s continued growth following the 2010 census supports updating the certified population count.
Why is a Special Census important to the residents of Piperton? The State of Tennessee allocates some funds to cities on a per capita basis, that is, the number of persons residing within a municipality’s boundaries. Any increase in population that we can verify will increase the money the City receives to help pay for City services such as Fire and Police protection and a variety of public infrastructure. Also, an increase in Piperton’s share of state funds relieves the burden on tax dollars generated locally.
We need your assistance to obtain an accurate up-to-date population count to verify the increase since the 2010 Federal Census. The State of Tennessee requires the City to supply the addresses of all households and the names of all persons residing within each household. You can help by supplying your household information in one of three different ways:
1. Fill out the census form that you received via the United States Postal Service and return it in the enclosed postage-paid envelope.
2. Fax the completed form to (901) 854-8396 to the attention of Christi Cannon.
3. Complete and submit electronic form. Click here.
It is urgent that you supply this information by Friday, February 12, 2016. The City is required to field check all addresses that do not return a completed census form. Please help us avoid that expense by providing the completed census form by the deadline.
If you have any questions about the Special Census, please contact Christi Cannon at (901) 853-4830 Ext. 1 or email email@example.com. You may also contact Steve Steinbach at (901) 853-4830 Ext. 6 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Mayor Coats, City of Piperton
