Ready for Revival
Around Town
by Kaytlyn Mroz

Dubbed as one of the nation's oldest "small cities," Woodbury spans just a little over two square miles and is home to around 10,000 people. And while the city has faced its fair share of hardships over the years, it's not a secret to the business leaders and influential people of the community that Woodbury is making the trek to greatness. 
Mayor Jessica Floyd, who has been on the job since the beginning of the year, says there are plans to revitalize the problematic areas of the city that have been vacant for far too long.

The City of Woodbury has 3 locations set up for toy donations!

* City Hall - 33 Delaware St (8:30 am to 4:30 pm M-F)
