Georgetown lost its spot atop the list of fastest-growing U.S. cities, according to U.S. Census 2015-16 population estimates released today, but the city remains in the top 5 rankings.
With an estimated population of 67,140 people, Georgetown grew by an estimated 5.5 percent between mid-2015 and mid-2016.
