(FONDA, NY) – Completing the 2020 U.S. Census can have a profound impact on the community. Whether it’s federal aid for roads, schools, health care or emergency services, without an accurate count Montgomery County could lose out.

“The Census is incredibly important and there are a only a few days left to complete the process and get counted.
