  • City of Atkins Mayor’s News

    Mayor will be at City Hall December 7th at 9am to talk to any residents with questions or concerns.

    The Census 2020 work is ramping up. Jobs are available now for the Census. The Census is a primary factor when money is allocated to Cities across the nation. The City receives funds from several sources based on population, so an accurate count is important to City funding. Money for streets for example is provided to the City based on population so I encourage all residents to participate in the Census 2020 when the information is available. Each address will be contacted to participate by mail, online, or in person.
