Augusta Mayor Davis gives update on 2020 Census efforts


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Augusta Mayor Hardie Davis delivered an update on 2020 Census efforts in the city, Wednesday.

Right now, Mayor Davis says the response rate in Richmond County is about 60%, but he wants to get that to 100%.

There are some areas where census response is low, like in Olde Town and other areas where broadband internet access isn’t as prevalent.

The mayor says teams will be out for the next several days to count households.

“I want to set out a challenge today and that challenge is to take five of your family members and call them. And ask them have they completed the census.”

Wednesday night, many of in Augusta will get a robocall about the census. The deadline for the count is September 30th.
