2020 Census



Starting in 1790, and every 10 years since, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the United States.  Responding to the census affects the amount of funding your school and the City of Anthon receives, your representation in government, and planning for our community.

       Beginning in mid-March, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census.  Once you receive it, you can respond online, by phone, or by mail.  In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.

      When completing the census, you should count everyone who is living in your household on April 1, 2020.  Your answers are confidential.  

Warning Siren Test

Anthon's warning siren will be tested the 1st Monday of each month @ 1:00 pm from March until October.


Higher than normal water usage?


Higher than normal water usage? Use this helpful tip to determine if you have a leaky toilet, water softener leak, or just a leaky pipe in your home:

STEP 1 - Locate your water meter. (Usually found in the basement next to your water filter)

STEP 2 - Make sure all your water fixtures in your home are turned off.

STEP 3 - Check to see if the small red dial is spinning. (See photo) If dial is spinning, you have a water leak.

A small leak can cause thousands of gallons of water loss in a months time. Check your meter often and fix leaks to save yourself money. Please share this helpful tip!
