Local and state officials say they're making their final push for people to fill out the 2020 census.

Macomb mayor Michael Inman said the area is ahead of where they were 10 years ago but says it's still not enough.

He said the census is the best way for the community to get a hold of much-needed federal money.

"For getting those dollars here locally for building roads, to take care of school funding, all those essential services that the community expects for government to provide, that's the only real way were going to get these dollars here," Inman said.

He says the city is putting on an event this weekend with food trucks to encourage participation.

"The idea will be putting these foodtrucks out, they'll be giving away free food that the census folks will be underwriting with dollars and we;ll have census takers on site top help people, walk them thru the online portion of participating in the census," he said.

Inman said the census the deadline is September 30.
