Jefferson County Reviews
I moved to a very small town in Jefferson County at the age of seven. I haven't experienced anything bad in my time here, unless you count tornado weather and the horrible power outages. However, that really isn't in control of the county. I would, however, love if the county could find the funds somewhere to redo more of the roads. There are so many potholes where I live, at least.
Jefferson county is a very good community. I have had the privilege to be part of an amazing school in Jefferson county even though I live in walker county. Corner high school is very caring for their students and to me everyone in Jefferson county is very supportive. For example, people are very encouraging as they try to have activities everyone can enjoy which allows them to be part of the community.
I would love to see the crime change from negative to positive, more extracurricular outlets to keep people occupied.
