The 2010 Census is Underway!
Have you completed and returned your census questionnaire yet? The data that we provide in our census questionnaire is used for plan for rural development, providing more effective services, attracting new businesses to our area, and much more. This census form is actually one of the shortest and easiest in history - it is estimated that it will only take 10 minutes for the average household to complete the questionnaire. Additionally, all census information remains confidential.
May 1st is the deadline for returning the questionnaires. Filling out and returning your census form will not only benefit the Village of Union, but you will also avoid a census working from having to come to your door for a non-response follow up!
Recycling Trailer Returns this Friday!
Remember to save your recyclables to be placed in the recycling trailer that will be located in Union this Friday! The trailer will be placed on the Main Street Building property (next to the Post Office) and will remain until next Friday morning*.
*While the Cass County recycling calendar indicates that the trailer will remain in Union all day on Friday, the trailer is actually transported to Omaha early Friday morning by a Union volunteer to be emptied and moved to the next location (Murray Fire Department).

There will be no personal information requested on this survey and the results will be used to priorotize projects to impliment in our community. More information on the distribution dates of the survey coming soon . . .
