Crossville Receives Results From Special Census

The city of Crossville will be receiving more state-shared taxes based off the results of a special census that was recently conducted.

Crossville City Council members received the results of the census last night, which shows a net population increase of 544 people since the 2016 census. The latest census has the city’s population at around 11,564.

Census director Arnold Harbolt said under current calculation for per-capita tax allocations the city would receive an additional $61,395.84 a year or a little more than $240,000 over the next four years.

Currently, state-shared taxes amount to about 7-percent of the city’s budget.

The latest census tallied 5,509 total addresses. 5,319 of those addresses were occupied.

Last year the city budgeted $50,000 for the special census, but it only spent $36,760 to conduct it.
