WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - Many Michigan communities are struggling to bring in new business. That is not the case however in one part of Wyoming. It is actually growing.
At a job fair Monday in Wyoming, lines are long and hopes are high to get one of 200 positions at the new YMCA.
Applicant Nicholas Gagnon says, "I just got laid off, now I'm just looking for something to pay the rent."
YMCA's Executive Director Bev Thiel says, "We determined this area was large not only for families and singles, but businesses and organizations."
The YMCA is just one of the businesses coming to Wyoming. Gordon Food Services is also moving earth in Wyoming-- adding jobs-- and more tax money.
Curtis Holt, Wyoming's City Manager says Gordon Food Services could add $100,000 to $150,000 to the city.
Unlike many Michigan communities, Holt says industrial development in Wyoming is booming.
