 Goodyear, Ariz. (May 4, 2017) – The city of Goodyear has launched “InFocus Live!”, a new video series that gives viewers an inside look at life in the city. The show features a wide variety of special guests who share a behind-the-scenes look at how local government services are delivered and the impact they have on quality of life. The staff favorite ‘Video in a Van’ segment is a “windshield” style interview that takes place on a drive through the city.  

The show is produced by the City’s Communications Division, which also produces the InFocus community magazine.

The latest episode features local business owner Kevin George, who meets Phoebe the yellow Labrador retriever and highlights how the city helps launch and expand local entrepreneurs.
