{Census workers to begin knocking on Chandler doors}: #Chandler households failing to participate in an online Census Test being conducted by the U. S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau) will begin receiving knocks on the door from Census workers beginning May 14.
 
More than 50,000 Chandler households were mailed postcards in March asking them to participate in a Census Test. The postcards directed residents to a website to complete a questionnaire asking how many people live in the house, and for each person, their name, sex, age, relationship to the respondent, Hispanic origin, and race.
The survey also asked for a telephone number and whether the housing unit is owned or rented. Anyone receiving a postcard, but not responding, will now receive a personal visit from a Census Bureau interviewer in an attempt to gather the information. Door-to-door visits will occur through June 23 and Census workers will be wearing identification badges.
 
Even though data collected during the Census Test will not affect Chandler’s official population count, City officials are asking residents to please participate because it will help the Census Bureau make critical design decisions that will shape how the rest of America participates in the next census in 2020. 
 
Later this fall, in an effort unrelated to the Census Test, Chandler will be working with the Maricopa Association of Governments and the Census Bureau to administer a 2015 Mid-Decade Census in Chandler that will provide updated population numbers.
 
Citizen participation in Chandler’s Mid-Decade Census will be important for the City’s financial health as it may help Chandler qualify for additional federal and state revenues needed to provide essential services like public safety, street repairs and other important services.

{Correction}: Thank you to @Olivia Alfreda Rodriguez for letting us know that her dog Cisco was named King in this weekend's Chihuahua Races. We apologize for confusing Olivia's sweet Cisco with another contender for the crown!

Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and the City Council will dedicate the new Fire Station No. 1 in a public ceremony at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, 2015. The new station, located at 1491 E. Pecos Road, is replacing the existing Station No. 1, which is near the intersection of Pecos Road and Hamilton Street.
 
The #Chandler Fire, Health & Medical (CFHM) Department built the new 13,800-square-foot station to address several existing and future service needs. The adjusted coverage area of the new location will improve response times along the eastern edge of the City. It also enables the Department to eliminate the need for one of two stations that were planned for the growing southeast Chandler area. The space vacated at the older station, built more than 30 years ago, will be used by other City departments.

 The new station was built by Danson Construction, LLC, for approximately $3.75 million. The site is on land that was already owned by the City and adjacent to the Pecos Road Water Treatment Facility. Station No. 1 will be home to Engine 281, Community Paramedic 281, CFHM/PMT Ambulance 281, Battalion Command Vehicle 281, and the battalion chief headquarters.
 For more information about the Chandler Fire, Health & Medical Department, please call 480-782-2120 or go online to http://www.chandleraz.gov/fire.
