Office of the Mayor and Town Council

I am glad that you stopped by to learn more about our town. We have built this site with you in mind, and hope you find all you need to know about Shorter, Alabama.

For our existing citizens, this site provides useful information about new developments, meetings, and volunteer and membership opportunities. If you are a new resident, potential business developer, or visitor, you will find information about our Town’s history, master planning efforts, town departments, services and obtain local maps.

Shorter sits close to everywhere, yet is far enough from everything to ensure peace and tranquility from the hustle and bustle of more commercialized environments.

We are currently moving to develop a downtown in Shorter and invite you to claim your part of it. Shorter is a new small town with great potential for growth and development. Each day, new jobs and homes are developed here. The only thing missing is you. Stop by and find out why Shorter, Alabama is “A Town on the Move!”

Yours very truly,

Willie Mae Powell, Mayor
