The Town of McLennan will be conducting a new census count beginning in May. A census enumerator will be going door to door asking how many people reside in each household.
It is important that we have a correct census count for potential developers and the numbers also affect the Town of McLennan’s grant funding for the next five years.
The lower our population the lower the grant funding received. Smoky River Economic Development has agreed to assist by paying 75 per cent of the cost to do a new Census.
