Mayor Byron Brown is asking Buffalo residents for five minutes of their time.

City of Buffalo residents are encouraged to take the 2020 census this weekend.

Brown says the count is considered in federal funding coming to the city for education, housing, roads, and infrastructure for the next 10 years.

"Census 2020 is critically important for our community. We need every baby, every man, woman, child, and senior citizen to be recorded in the census," Brown said.

The mayor says it only takes a few minutes, and can be done on a mobile phone.
