The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors met yesterday morning and heard an update from Kent Boyum and Nancy Watkins regarding the 2010 census for Maharishi Vedic City. When Maharishi Vedic City was incorporated as a city in 2001, their population was 259. County Supervisor Steve Burgmeier says they received information that the US Census Bureau made an error in their tabulation of the residents in last year’s census.
He says 1040 residents were entered into their system incorrectly. Bergmeier says these residents were originally considered part of unincorporated Jefferson County.
He adds these residents are actually part of Maharishi Vedic City. Bergmeier says this will have an impact on the amount of tax funds that will be going to Vedic City.
Maharishi Vedic City’s new population will be 1299. The next Jefferson County Board of Supervisors meeting will be Monday at 9:00 am in the third floor meeting room of the Jefferson County Courthouse.
