Annual Census Forms (Street Listing) for 2014 have been mailed to Rutland households. If you did not receive a form, please call Acting Town Clerk Anita Carlson at 508-886-4104 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you received a form and
have not returned it, please do so as soon as possible. Please add any members of your household (including children) who were not included on the form.
The Annual Census is conducted each year as required by Massachusetts State Law.
The census is used to maintain the voting list and to assist in town planning for programs such as those for the elderly. It also provides projections for school enrollment and public safety needs.
An up to date census count is the basis for the allocation of State and Federal Funds and Grants. It also provides proof of residency, which is often necessary for veterans’ benefits. If a family member is in the military or away at school, you may keep them
on your census as long as they are not a registered voter elsewhere.
