As Summit County weathered the past pandemic year, it resorted to a number of programs to help businesses slammed by the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the Economic Development Advisory Board.


Summit County Economic Development Director Jeff Jones said the Economic Advisory Board was formed last summer. It was enabled by the recently passed Utah Senate Bill 95, creating a Rural County Grant Program to help businesses.

U.S. Census Bureau

Even with the many disruptions going on, Summit County officials are hoping that locals will remember one important task—filling out their forms for the 10-year United States Census survey.   

Summit County’s Economic Development Director Jeff Jones has been promoting the census effort.   This is the first time the census form can be submitted online.   

Jones said it’s a quick and easy process.    And there can be a lot at stake.

Around 30 Summit County community members met Monday evening to learn more about the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census. 

What is the census? That’s the first question the recent Summit County 2020 Census Town Hall sought to answer. Members from the League of United Latin American Citizens, or LULAC, presented information in Spanish and English about the once-per-decade effort to count everyone living in the United States. Summit County is pushing to increase the number of households counted in the 2020 Census. In 2010, only 55% of Summit County households responded.

U.S. Census Bureau

In 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau starts its once-a-decade efforts to count every person living in the country. Summit County is preparing for the count.

Summit County Economic Development Director Jeff Jones says the census—which is conducted every 10 years—is important for a lot of reasons.
