Town of Black Looks to Re-Kindle It's Economy

A small Alabama border town is looking for young families and industry to help re-kindle it's economy.

The town of Black sits along the Geneva/Holmes countyline. With only a few hundred residents, the town's general store closed several years-ago. But Black's Mayor Tom Majors sees light at the end of the tunnel.

Recently, a new water system went on-line. The increased capacity can more than accommodate a possible industry wishing to move in. It can also provide water to those looking to build homes, or even apartments. The mayor remembers when black was a bustling little community complete with a train depot.

Although there are no business prospects on the horizon at this time, Mayor Majors says he, along with others will continue to lobby existing and start-up businesses looking for a quiet community to set up shop.
