Lethbridge is on the verge of a major milestone this year, possibly hitting or surpassing the 100,000 population mark.
The City of Lethbridge is gearing up for the 2018 census. The City is now recruiting tech savvy census takers. Individuals are needed for a three-week period beginning April 1st with flexible work hours. Those interested in being a census taker must be a Lethbridge resident, able to walk long distances, able to operate a smart phone or tablet, be at least 18 years of age, and have an active email account. Applications are available on the City's website until February 23rd. Last year, Lethbridge's population came in at 98,198 residents. Indications are the City could hit the 100,000 mark this year. - Pat Siedlecki
