SO MANY STILL UNCOUNTED!
The 2020 Census response rate for Universal City is currently at 64.6% and we can do better!

Need help? Get answers to FAQ at https://2020census.gov/en/help.html

Why is the census important?
The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Breakfast ready for the family !! Best Barbacoa all meat and flour tortillas 🌮😋 from Los Tapatios Market
I have a question about an abandon house on my street. It appears that who ever lived there just left. The garage door is open about 6 inches and has been for quite some time now, so me and the neighbors wonder what might be living there. The lawn is over grown and the tree in the front yard is hanging on the sidewalk. There is an American flag on the balcony that is dirty and twisted. If no one is living there or the place is abandoned I'd like to know what you guys can do so maybe we can at least lock up the place better and maybe straighten up the area.
