Garden City Challenges Census A Second Time

KSCB News - April 4, 2012 8:24 am

Garden City officials are ready for a
second round in a fight with the U.S. Census Bureau over the
western Kansas city’s population.
The city first challenged the federal agency after it said in
2011 that the city had 26,658 residents. Last week, the Census
Bureau added seven people to the population count.
That prompted the Garden City Commission to decide Tuesday to
file a second challenge. City officials believe the population is
between 28,000 to 30,300 residents. They contend the bureau didn’t
count six areas of the city in its 2010 count.
The Garden City Telegram reports
commissioners acknowledged the challenge might be more symbolic
than productive.
They said census officials have said they won’t send anyone to
the city or use other documentation to reconsider the count.
