FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Jan. 28, 2009
U.S. Census Bureau job testing available at Mohart Center
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Neighborhood and Community Services Department is partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau to provide employment testing for census jobs.
The employment testing will take place at the Robert J. Mohart Multipurpose FOCUS Center every Tuesday and Thursday from 2-5:30 p.m. until staffing needs are met. The Mohart Center is located at 3200 Wayne Ave. and is operated by the Human Services Division of the Neighborhood and Community Services Department. Applicants are asked to park in the free parking lot at 33rd and Flora streets and enter through the center's south doors.
"We are very pleased to be able to provide space for the census bureau staff in our facility for these testing sessions," said Jackie Powell, manager of the Human Services Division. "It is critical that an accurate count of residents is taken during the census because the numbers reported eventually determine the number of federal representatives we have and how much federal funding our community receives."
For more information and to register for a session, call the U.S. Census Bureau, (816) 977-2121.
Media inquiries about this issue should be directed to Teresa L. Clark, public information officer for the Neighborhood and Community Services Department, (816) 513-3247.
