You Count!

The City of Dade City is encouraging you to respond to the Census survey that our residents started receiving in March. How does your participation matter to Dade City?  Without an accurate census count, federal money available to our community may be underrepresented. Dade City fights to bring your tax dollars back to the Community. Many of our projects are funded with grants from the Federal Government passed through to the State. Without proper demographic information, our funding could greatly depreciate or cause us to not be eligible.  Please do your part, and remember that you count!
