From staff reports
The City of Oil City will begin conducting demographic surveys today for a street reconstruction project on the entire length of Oak Street in conjunction with its Community Development Block Grant program.
The city said that to determine grant eligibility, federal regulations associated with the program require a demographic survey be conducted on all families benefiting from the reconstruction project.
A 100% response rate is required.
The city will not, under any circumstances, ask residents to report their income.
All information collected will remain strictly confidential and will be used only for the purposes of grant administration, the city said.
If residents haven’t responded by the Dec. 2 deadline, the city will follow up with phone calls and door-to door visits to gather the necessary information for non-respondents.
Any questions regarding the survey may be directed to the city’s Community Development Department at (814) 678-3017.
