Milton wins census contest

The King of the Rock contest is over and Milton will have bragging rights for the next ten years. Milton out-did both Edgerton and Janesville in a friendly contest for the highest self-response rate in the census. Milton Mayor Anissa Welch says an accurate count is important for a fair dispersal of federal tax dollars. Welch commends both Edgerton and Janesville, who had an 81% and 79% return rate compared to Milton’s more than 82%.
