City on the hunt for enumerators

The city is looking for people who will help Red Deer learn a little more about itself.

The city is looking for people who will help Red Deer learn a little more about itself.

Applications for the position of enumerator for the 2013 municipal census are being accepted until Friday.

The original application deadline has been pushed back as the city is seeking an additional five to 10 enumerators to fill out its crew of approximately 40.

Applicants must be available to work from March 25 to April 2 and April 19 to May 10. The job includes the hand delivering of letters to every household within the city. Enumerators may then also have to go back to certain households to gather information later.

However, this year the task will be lightened some, as citizens will be able to fill in their census forms online for the first time.

The annual municipal census was scrapped last year as a lower growth rate meant the process would not end up being cost neutral. The census is done to help with infrastructure and program planning, and the determination of grant funding. It also provides useful demographic information to community agencies.

People can apply in person to the census office in the basement of City Hall.

For more information, call 403-342-8317.
