Important Reminder Regarding Delinquent Residential GFL Invoices

So join us for Waterford’s official Census Week and take 10 minutes today to complete the Census online at www.2020census.gov, or by phone 800-923-8282.  Your action today helps shape Waterford’s future for the next 10 years.  You may also visit Waterford Township’s Census information page at www.waterfordmi.gov/census for details, resources, videos and more!   And remember our Waterford 2020 Census Slogan – I count, You count, We count, Everyone counts.
