Ozark, Ala. (WDHN)—Earlier this year, Holle Smith took over as Director of the Dale County Industrial Board.

With 2021 coming to a close, she feels the “seeds have been sowed” for business expansion in Ozark
and the surrounding areas.

Smith says due to confidentiality, she can’t specifically talk about a business or industry.

But, she says there’s interest by companies nationwide in possibly locating a plant in Dale County.

As far as transportation is concerned, it is served by four-laned, “North-South”, Highway 231.

In addition, it has railroad capabilities for freight.
