Tom Williams

Mayor of Satsuma

Welcome to the official website of the City of Satsuma.  Satsuma is a friendly, progressive, small town charming community that is rated by FBI statistics for 2019 as the safest city in Alabama.  The Satsuma City School System provides an excellent education for our students from Pre-K through high school.  For students who do not plan to attend college, the dual enrollment courses provide a path to high paying tech jobs.

Satsuma is located in East Central Mobile County, Alabama at the intersection of U.S. Highway 43 and Exit 19 on I-65, just 20 minutes north of Mobile, Alabama.  The location on beautiful Gunnison Creek offers access to the Mobile River Delta which is an excellent opportunity for fishing, hunting, boating and kayaking.

Citizens and visitors enjoy our historic public library, beautiful Steele Creek Lodge and boat launch, splash pad, parks and recreation facilities.  We are proud of our modern City Hall and excited about the current construction of a new Public Safety Building and a 64 unit gated Senior Citizens living complex, both scheduled to be completed in late 2019.  The new Public Safety Building will house both the Police and Fire departments.

Our staff and employees strive to provide the very best possible city services.  With a population of around 6400 our city services offer a personal touch not usually found in larger cities.  Satsuma is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

As Mayor and on behalf of the City Council I invite you to visit, live and start a business in the City of Satsuma.
