The City of Minot will be launching a campaign in January to encourage residents to be counted when the national census officially rolls out in March.
Brian Billingsley, the City of Minot’s community and economic development director, said the city’s Complete Count Committee plans to begin moving in January on its awareness strategies to remind residents to return their census surveys during the participation period from March 12 to April 30.
People could see advertisements on city buses and sanitation trucks in February. Radio and print advertising, door hangers and grocery bag inserts will appear in March and April. Local libraries will be giving away reminder bookmarks. There also will be banners, posters, flyers and miscellaneous swag as well as advertising on social media through Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
