From COVID-19 to national unrest, 2020 was a tough year. In the midst of the chaos, the City of Albertville managed to remain hopeful as it continued to grow and progress on multiple projects.

“Albertville has 26 major industries within our city limits,” Mayor Tracy Honea said. “We’re so proud to have them call us home and are grateful for their leadership that found a way to keep them going over the last nine months. We want to thank our small business community—our local merchants, restaurants, and retailers for persevering through a year full of struggles they could’ve never imagined and the ever changing unknown of whether or not they could open and make their livelihood from one month to the next. To our fellow citizens, it has never been more important to remember to shop local.”
