It's news the city of Bastrop has been waiting to hear.

Tuesday, Deluxe picked Bastrop to be in the top five for its Small Business Revolution. Should the city win it all, the community will receive $500,000 towards revitalization efforts.

City officials said it's more than about the money, it's a way to show the world that Bastrop is still open for business. Mayor Connie Schroeder explains to our Victoria Maranan what's on the line and how you can help.
