Manvel city officials were contacted by the U.S. Census Bureau to alert citizens that they can become paid census takers.
The job opportunity provides a way to make extra income and become part of an important process that helps Manvel make decisions about its future, get federal grants and secure other funds.
The jobs offer flexible hours, weekly pay and paid training.
Governments, nonprofits, and businesses use the census data in many ways to shape communities now and in the future.
