Buzz: Preparations under way for 2020 Census. Kroger to start ‘Scan, Bag, Go’ service. Armuchee’s LGST to meet on Monday.

The 2020 Census will be here before we know it, and local governments, including the City of Rome and Floyd County are already preparing.  The U.S. government is required by the Constitution to take a count of the nation every ten years to determine how many seats each state gets in the House of Representatives, with seats assigned on the basis of population.  The census numbers help federal, state and local governments plan the collection and distribution of tax dollars for infrastructure, education, health, safety, and other needs of the community.  Local governments rely on accurate information on the size and make-up of their communities when applying for grants and loans, obtaining eligibility for housing programs, and competing for transportation dollars.

Kroger’s Atlanta Division will introduce Scan, Bag, Go shopping technology, making the service available this year to customers at stores in Georgia and South Carolina by the end of the year. Kroger’s in-house research and development team invented and built the Scan, Bag, Go technology. Scan, Bag, Go allows customers to use a wireless handheld scanner or the Scan, Bag, Go app on their personal device to scan and bag products as they shop for a quicker, seamless checkout experience. Scan, Bag, Go customers currently visit a store’s self-checkout area to provide payment. Customers will soon have the ability to provide payment directly through the app, allowing shoppers to exit the store even quicker. Scan, Bag, Go will be offered as an option alongside traditional checkout lanes staffed by friendly associates, self-checkout, online ordering, curbside pickup, and home delivery in select cities.

The Armuchee High School Local School Governance Team (LSGT) will go into Executive Session on Monday, February 5th at 7:15 am in the AHS Data Room to discuss personnel.
