JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - The city of Joliet is preparing to conduct a special census to determine whether it has gained population since 2010.

According to The Herald-News (http://bit.ly/29bOU48 ), the city has contracted the U.S. Census Bureau to conduct the special count and will spend almost $100,000 in the process. But Joliet hopes it can pick up more than $900,000 in population-based federal and state funding.

Deputy City Manager Steve Jones says the count will focus on areas of new growth on Joliet’s far West Side and one new subdivision on the city’s East Side.

The city’s population in the 2010 Census was 147,433.
