City leaders unanimously voted to refinance the Town of Woodbury’s debt with Pinnacle Bank in a move that will enable Woodbury to be out of debut in 2031 during the monthly meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen Tuesday (Aug. 6).
Consultant Anthony Pelham recommended the Town of Woodbury refinance with Pinnacle based on reports from TAU, which the Town of Woodbury hired to determine the best method to pay off the debt.
The decision will enable to pay off the city’s debt years earlier than otherwise.
