An open letter to the Town of Cornelius
As the nation reacts to the tragic death of Mr. George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN, Cornelius Town officials respond in an open letter to the Town of Cornelius.

The 2020 Census deadline has been extended to October 31
Thanks to all who have completed the 2020 Census so far! As of May 30, Mecklenburg County's overall response rate is 60%, and the response rate in Cornelius is 68%.
We are off to a great start, and we can't wait to hear from the rest of you. Remember that your voice matters!

The data from the 2020 Census helps the Town receive federal funding for the next ten years that goes toward education, transportation, and healthcare.
If you have not already done so, we urge you to complete the census. It only takes a few minutes to make a big difference!
