A national business magazine has again picked Findlay as the top small city in the United States. Site Selection magazine says Findlay beat out 574 other micropolitan communities for the honor. It’s the second year in a row Findlay has placed first in the magazine’s annual rankings. Findlay is also one of four small cities to be in the top 10 list 10 times since the rankings began in 2000.
