At its Sept. 9 meeting, the Woodbury City Council approved health, safety and security improvements to City Hall. Remodeling will begin the week of Sept. 14 and continue through at least November, with some improvements taking place into spring 2021.

Because you don’t put up your house as collateral for the loan, your rate is based on your credit and income information. If you can’t repay the loan, your credit will take the hit.
