It’s census time in Farragut.

No, not the national census conducted by the U.S. Department of Commerce Census Bureau each decade, but a counting of residents in Farragut that could result in an additional $289,000 in the town’s coffers.


The town staff has audited residential building permits in the town since the census of 2000 and determined that there should be more than the roughly 18,000 citizens counted in 2000 — about 3,000 more.

The state-shared aid the town receives is about $101 per person, so do the math.

This is one way the town can continue to drive the Farragut Property Tax wolf from the door of its citizens.

Town staff says the form is simple and it has its own postage-paid envelope.

So, do your town and your neighbors a favor and send it in without the town having to pay someone to visit your home to gather the information.
