With the large number of retired older people on fixed incomes and many others without jobs there have been quite a few occasions when the city has become financially unstable. At least twice the city has been forced into bankruptcy. A few years ago the city put in a new sewer system which was badly needed. However, many homes are still using septic tanks. The new sewer system placed an unneeded heavy burden on the residents, who are paying the cost on their already high monthly water bill. With the high cost of Homeowner's insurance and fire insurance, many homes are not insured at all or are woefully underinsured. As a result, when most homes burn down they are not rebuilt due to the high cost of replacement. Many vacant lots can be seen in every area of the city.


The city does not have their own U.S. Post Office or ZIP code. They share the Bessemer, Alabama ZIP code(35020) which causes the casual observer to believe the city is part of Bessemer. This is not true, although the residents pay their water and sewer bill to the City of Bessemer.


With very few businesses within the city limits, the city derives little from state sales taxes. Most residents buy their groceries and other needs in surrounding cities. To try and add to the city income, the city attempts to keep several police cars operating, so as to produce revenue from speeding tickets and other traffic violations. The pay for police officers isn't really adequate, so there is a big turnover within the police force.
