Every 10 years, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the United States. Data from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to communities across the country to support vital programs—impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy. They also are used to redraw the boundaries of congressional and state legislative districts and accurately determine the number of congressional seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The next census will take place in 2020. Beginning in midMarch, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census. Once you receive it, you can respond online. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.
In 2020, for the first time ever, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online, but you can still respond by phone or mail if you prefer. Responding should take less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee.
The decennial census will collect basic information about the people living in your household. When completing the census, you should count everyone who is living in your household on April 1, 2020. Click here to look at a sample census questionnaire.
Yes. By law, every person living in the U.S. and its territories is required to respond to the census.
There are three ways to respond to the census: online or by phone or by mail. Households will receive an invitation in the mail with instructions for completing the questionnaire.
The response deadline is June 30, 2020. However, census workers will begin following up in person with households that have not responded by April 30, 2020.
Census workers will follow up with a home visit to households that do not respond.
The U.S. Census Bureau encourages each household to complete their questionnaire in its entirety. To ensure your questionnaire counts toward the population of your community, the response to the question regarding the number of people in the home, must be completed.
Your answers are only used for statistical purposes. This information helps the government make informed housing and planning decisions, and fund important programs in areas of education, transportation, healthcare and so much more.
Yes, the census offers the online and paper questionnaire in 12 non-English languages: Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog, Polish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, and Japanese.

You have the right to hire your own attorney. An attorney is not provided for you in a Municipal Court not of Record, as the Jenks Municipal Court is.
In ‘courts not of record’, oral proceedings are not recorded, as they are in ‘courts of record’; in most ‘not of record’ proceedings, the parties can and usually do appear personally, without lawyers. However, many proceedings have intermediate character, with some "of record" characteristics but not others.
Check the Yellow Pages, or you can contact the Tulsa County Bar Lawyer Referral Service.
You can appeal the conviction by filing a Notice of Appeal with the County District Court and the Municipal Court Clerk’s Office within 10 days of your conviction.
Depending upon the nature of the case, fines range from $100 to $800 plus court costs. Some cases can provide for jail time in addition to fine and cost.
The Judge will call your name and you may enter a ‘Not Guilty’, ‘Guilty’, or ‘No Contest’ plea. Appearing on your initial court date also gives you a chance to ask the Judge for a reduction in fines. If you plead ‘Not Guilty’, you will be assigned a Trial date.
The Judge imposes sentences. Court staff members cannot guess what the sentence will be, as different facts and laws may apply to each case. However, certain offenses have mandatory sentences, meaning a judge cannot order a lesser sentence than is required. Other offenses allow a judge to use discretion. If a charge has a mandatory sentence, the judge will inform you at the time of sentencing.
Depending on the alleged offense(s), you may be entitled to a trial by jury or trial by the court. You are entitled to hear all testimony against you. You have a right to cross-examine any witness who testifies against you, the right to testify on your own behalf, and a Constitutional right not to testify. If you choose not to testify, a refusal cannot and will not be used against you in determining guilt or innocence. If you choose to testify, the City will have the right to cross-examine you. You may call witnesses to testify on your behalf and you have the right to have the court issue subpoenas for witnesses to ensure appearance at trial.

For licensing purposes, a licensed veterinarian must give the rabies vaccination. A vaccination certificate signed by the veterinarian must be supplied as proof of vaccination.
Vaccinations given by an owner, animal breeder, pet store, as well as out-of-country, are not valid for licensing purposes.
Depending on the vaccine given, the rabies vaccination is good for one to three years. It is always best to consult with your veterinarian concerning vaccinations, treatment and health questions regarding your pet. Vaccinations given at a pet supply store are valid if a licensed veterinarian administers them.
Animal-inflicted injuries should be reported immediately. If the injury occurs in the City of Jenks, call Police at 918-299-6311 option 0. If the injury occurs outside the city limits of Jenks, report the injury to the local authority. If possible, confine the animal first and then call the appropriate number. Tell the person answering the phone where the animal is. Try to describe the breed, size, color or any distinct markings on the animal, where it may live, and if it's wearing a collar or tags. A Police Officer will be dispatched to your location to complete an animal bite report.
Yes, animal-inflicted injuries, including scratches and bites, pose a rabies threat. If you are injured, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water, report the incident and call your physician for treatment advice.
The animal is impounded and observed or sent to the lab for rabies virus testing. It may be quarantined per Police Department orders at an approved veterinary hospital at the owner's expense.
For additional information concerning ordinances, animals, pets, and animal control issues:
The City of Jenks allows the installation of any storm shelters or safe rooms that meet the standards of either FEMA P-320 or ICC-500. Some types of storm shelters and safe rooms require a permit from the City of Jenks before installation. A permit is required to ensure compliance of the location, construction, and installation with the local codes and the guidelines established by FEMA P-320 and/or ICC-500.
Yes. However, there are a few restrictions and considerations that must be examined with this type of shelter.
In homes located within the floodplain, FEMA P-320 requires that the safe room need only be elevated to the minimum lowest floor elevation identified by the floodplain ordinance of the community. If you are located in the floodplain within the City of Jenks and want to install this type of shelter, you must provide documentation that your home is elevated to this standard. Contact the City of Jenks for more information.
The best possible location for an in-ground safe room within a garage is in a no parking area. It is our recommendation that you place your safe room in such a way that it is unlikely that a vehicle would need to be moved to access the safe room.
Homes with a post-tension cable reinforcement system in the slab require an additional step in installation and an additional inspection. A post-tension slab has cables in the slab instead of traditional steel rebar. These cables are stressed to high levels of tension after the slab is poured and cured and provide support to the slab and protection from settlement of the foundation. The spacing of these cables is such that a safe room installed in a slab will require the removal of a portion of two to four cables typically. In order to protect the integrity of the cable system, cables that are cut must be re-stressed.
This process requires overcutting the slab on two sides of the intended installation area and installing hardware on the cut cables that will allow them to be re-stressed. A new section of concrete is then poured, allowed to cure, and the cables are then re-stressed. It is imperative that a homeowner with this type of slab contact a professional post-tension company, such as Stresscon or Oklahoma Post Tension, to perform this work. An inspection of this process is required and will be made by a City of Jenks inspector before new concrete is poured or a safe room placed in the ground. Homes with traditional rebar slab systems do not require this process or inspection, and a portion of the slab can be cut away for the installation of a safe room with minimal adverse effect to the foundation.
A permit can be issued to either the homeowner or the shelter/safe room company/contractor, but both parties will need to be involved with the permit process. The permit application requires information on construction, installation, zoning, and location. The City of Jenks permit processor may call the homeowner or shelter/safe room company to request more information.
Once a permit application has been turned in to the City of Jenks at Jenks City Hall at the following address it needs a minimum of three working days to process the permit:211 N Elm StreetJenks, OK 74037
This process may be delayed if more information is requested by the permit processors or due to an increased volume of applications. Once a permit is complete and ready to be issued, we will contact the person or company that has submitted the permit application.
Applications can be picked up in person at Jenks City Hall:211 N Elm StreetSecond FloorJenks, OK 74037
It can also be printed from the City of Jenks Protective Inspections page. Storm shelter and safe room permits are processed as a Residential Building Permit (PDF).
The City of Jenks requires a site plan for both outdoor and indoor shelter and safe room installations.
Outdoor shelters cannot be placed within the setbacks from property lines required by the zoning code, nor can they be installed within easements on the property, such as utility or drainage easements. These easements can typically be found on a copy of the mortgage plat, or by contacting the City of Jenks. The Jenks Zoning Code also requires that all shelters be placed in the rear yard of homes. The site plan for outdoor shelters must show property lines, the home, and the intended location of the shelter, with accurate dimensions from the shelter to the property lines and any easements related to your lot. This is usually accomplished by sketching the information onto a copy of the mortgage plat but can be drawn or printed on paper by the applicant as well.
Indoor safe rooms require a site plan showing the intended location and size or dimensions of the safe room, along with dimensions to the nearest walls on all sides. This information can be drawn onto a copy of construction blueprints or sketched accurately by the applicant on paper.
The City of Jenks recognizes that some of the legal and technical information that the permit requests might be confusing or unavailable to the homeowner. Our permit processors will help to acquire this information on any missing portions of the permit, with the understanding that this may delay the process slightly. Legal descriptions of your home can usually be acquired from a mortgage plat. Please work with your chosen shelter or safe room company/contractor to acquire as much information from them as possible. Some information, such as technical specifications, will need to be supplied by the shelter or safe room company.
Outdoor in-ground shelters require an inspection after the ground has been excavated, but before the shelter is placed. An additional inspection prior to digging may be requested to verify the shelter is out of all easements and setbacks. As with any outdoor digging, the contractor or homeowner should call OKIE to locate all utilities and buried lines.
Outdoor above ground shelters require a site inspection before placement to ensure zoning and easement requirements are met. An additional inspection will be required for any new foundation that is installed for the shelter.
Indoor in-ground safe rooms require an inspection if the slab has a post-tension cable system or if re-routing of plumbing lines or mechanical systems is performed.
Inspections requests should be called into Jenks City Hall at 918-299-5883. Requests may be made by the homeowners or the contractors. Many shelters and safe room companies require that the homeowners handle all permits and inspection requests. Homeowners should verify with the company or contractors who will be responsible for scheduling inspections.
Inspections are a necessary part of any construction process, to ensure that structures comply with construction and zoning codes. These codes are designed with the health and safety of both the community and individuals in mind. It is imperative that shelters and safe rooms are placed and installed properly. Failure to comply with the required inspections, zoning code, or building code is a punishable offense under local and state law.
The City of Jenks has created a registry of storm shelters and safe rooms within Jenks. This registry will be used by Emergency Responders in search and rescue operations if the need arises. We consider it very important that all shelter owners register so that their shelter or safe room and occupants can be located if the shelter or safe room was to be obstructed by debris. View the registration form online (PDF) or may be obtained at the Jenks Police Department. Please fill out the form and return it to the Jenks Police Department as directed on the form.
Inspection of any new foundation (if applicable) before pouring new concrete.

The first pickup day after Christmas the customer may place double the amount of trash without charge. Live or artificial tree removal is billed at $10 regardless of which day it is placed for removal.
Trash service is once a week only. The routes begin at 6 a.m. We recommend that customers have their cart out the night before.
If a trash cart needs repair we place a repair order for the cart. If the cart is damaged or destroyed by a customer by using the cart in a non-trash capacity the customer will be responsible for replacement of the cart. If the cart is stolen a police report must be filed with Jenks Police Department for trash company insurance purposes.
We do not make water adjustments for customers that fill their swimming pools. The fire department does not fill swimming pools.
There are 2 utility drop boxes located on the west side of City Hall. One is a drive-up in the parking lot and the other is a walkup on the left side of the door.
Senior solid waste rates are available, but all residents of the home must be 65 and older. The same rate is available for customers that are handicapped, but qualifications must be met. An application must be filled and filed at City Hall with the Revenue Department It then will be submitted for approval and this is done on a case by case basis. We do not backdate.
Fireworks Permits may be purchased from fireworks stands in Jenks, where the fireworks were purchased. Fireworks permits can also be purchased in City Hall at the Revenue Collections Window. Permits are $20 for a single family and $50 for neighborhood parties. Fireworks can only be fired from the property of the permit holder.
