 – By

Office of the Mayor

Proclamation

“International Overdose Awareness Day”

WHEREAS: International Overdose Awareness Day is committed to providing a platform to acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends who have lost loved ones to overdose or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose; and
WHEREAS: International Overdose Awareness Day spreads the message that the tragedy of overdose death is preventable; and
WHEREAS: Drug overdose knows no limits. It does not recognize victims’ race, religion, social economic status, or family ties. Anyone can battle drug addiction and face a possible overdose, but recognizing overdose warning signs enables and empowers families and friends to prevent overdose-related death by call for help; and
WHEREAS: The State of South Dakota is proactively running a campaign against drugs. The “Meth. We’re on it” campaign also includes a hotline for those seeking resources to call or text; and
WHEREAS: Members of the community and organizations associated with drug abuse prevention and aid will work to remove the stigma associated with overdose-related deaths and reinforce the belief that no one should feel shame or disgrace due to an overdose-related death of a love one.
Now, therefore, I, Robert Nelson, Mayor of Hot Springs, South Dakota do hereby proclaim August 31st, 2020, as International Overdose Awareness Day in Hot Springs.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventeenth day of August in the year of our Lord two thousand and twenty.

Robert Nelson, Mayor
Attest: Misty Summers-Walton Finance Officer

Public Service Notice: 2020 Census Door Knocking Begins August 11th

 – By

South Dakota officially begins Non-Response Follow Up (door knocking) for the 2020 Census on August 11, 2020.  All households that have yet to respond to the 2020 Census will be visited.  


There is still time to respond to the 2020 Census prior to a Census taker coming to your door.

online:  www.2020census.gov

phone:  844-330-2020

or mail in your form

What To Expect

Census takers will wear masks and follow local public health guidelines when they visit your home. All census takers complete a virtual COVID-19 training on social distancing and other health and safety protocols before beginning their work in neighborhoods.

Census takers are hired from your area, and their goal is to help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census. If the census taker who visits your home does not speak your language, you may request a return visit from a census taker who does speak your language.

If no one is home when the census taker visits, the census taker will leave a notice of their visit with information about how to respond onlineby phone or by mail.

If you respond online or by phone today, a census taker is less likely to have to visit your home to collect your response.

How Can You Verify That Someone Is a Census Taker?

If someone visits your home this year to collect information for the 2020 Census, check to make sure they have a valid ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo.

Census takers may also deliver a paper questionnaire by hanging it on the front door in a water-resistant plastic bag.

If you still have questions about their identity, you can contact your regional census center to speak with a Census Bureau representative.
