Town to conduct special census


The town of Farragut is requesting the help of every Farragut resident with a special census being conducted to garner increased revenue from the state of Tennessee.

Letters have been mailed to every home in Farragut, and residents are asked to complete the confidential form and return it in the enclosed postage-paid envelope by Friday, Sept. 9.

Projected state-shared aid municipalities can receive for 2005-2006 is $101.36 per person. Given Farragut’s continued growth since the last census in 2000, this census should result in a significant increase in state-shared revenue for the town.

In 2000, Farragut had a population of 17,720. Through an analysis of residential building permits issued since then, estimates show Farragut’s population has potentially increased by 2,860.

If this population estimate is correct, the town would receive an additional $289,890 per year from the state government.

The town will be required to field check all addresses that do not return the survey sheets.

If a resident does not receive or loses the survey, extra survey sheets are available at Farragut Town Hall.

Please contact Kelley Hall at 865-966-7057 or kelley.hall@townoffarragut.org with any questions.
