You will be receiving a mailing from the Census Bureau sometime early this year. It is important you complete and submit your Census data. The amount of money that Florida and the City of Plantation receives from the federal government is dependent on our population. At a recent Board meeting, we had two speakers from the Census Bureau. They said the Bureau estimates that Plantation lost about 5 million dollars since the last census due to inaccurate reporting. You can provide your information by return mail, online or by telephone.
