OZARK, Ala. (WDHN) — The Ozark economy is doing fine, this according to Mayor Bob Bunting.

The mayor says Ft. Rucker and people shopping at local stores have kept the economy steady.

However, Bunting says there is one area that has been negatively impacted by the pandemic: fuel sales. According to Bunting, fuel sales are used for paving roads and streets.

“Our revenue has been OK,” Bunting told WDHN. “It really has. That’s what I’m reviewing, how we did this month and this is a report and it shows that it appears that we’re going to be OK.”

Bunting said he hopes as more businesses open back up, business will remain steady.
