Please Make the 2020 Census Count: The coming US 2020 Census count is directly related to how much money the State of Illinois returns to the City of Highwood from state income and motor fuel taxes. These funds are used to pave roads, maintain street lights and sidewalks, improve parks, and pay for police and other services. So… make sure you participate when asked to do so. There are also jobs available: work for the US 2020 Census. Go here for job information.
