City With Opportunity


Fayette is a town where people have always found opportunity waiting to be fulfilled.


From its beginning as one of the earliest towns in northwest Alabama, industrious citizens have captured the future with their visions and dreams. Across many fields of endeavor Fayette has been the starting point for people with great ideas, energy and expectations for tomorrow.


A small rural town might not be expected to provide an environment for innovation or acceptance of changing economic trends, but our city has initiated many new products and embraced the evolving business world.


City government works closely with the local community college to provide employee training and programs for several companies that supply the region, nation and world with products in a variety of fields.


There is Opportunity for You in Fayette! You will be surprised at what you can achieve here.
