Each spring, the City of Beaumont conducts a municipal census. Departments use this vital information to gain a clear picture of the needs of Beaumont citizens and guides planning decisions accordingly. Outcomes affecting future transportation networks and the locations of schools, parks, utilities, and fire protection facilities are largely based on population growth statistics collected in the municipal census. In addition, many of the grants received from the Province are awarded on a per capita basis, and a complete census count ensures that maximum grant funds are received.
