TOPEKA - It's time to stand up and be counted!
Topeka city leaders were on hand Monday for the opening of the Topeka census office.
The new office at 900 SW 39th Street will bring about 50 new jobs to the area. When the 2010 census is in full swing, it's expected to employ about 1000 people to conduct field operations.
The decennial event helps the federal government apportion representatives as well as providing a wealth of demographic information.
