• Not Your Mom’s Decatur

    Growing up in the early 2000s, I took the incredible amenities Decatur has to offer for granted, and I was excited to “grow up” and move away somewhere new. After traveling and a four-year move to Tuscaloosa, when my husband and I decided to plant roots, Morgan County was easily where we wanted to live. Now, Decatur is where my husband and I both work and spend our free time very often.
  • Positively Caring City Employees

    Oscar Jasso and Dillion Boteler of the Environmental Services Department were out on their collection route, when they witnessed a resident collapse in their yard. Oscar and Dillion stayed with the resident, called 911, and followed the dispatcher’s instructions until medical attention could arrive.
  • Positively Supportive

    Local shop owner, Eva Blayhut, provides a service that goes well beyond what you’d expect. The continuous support from the community affords Eva the opportunity to keep returning the favor.
