Phenix City is a city in Lee and Russell counties in the State of Alabama, and the county seat of Russell County. As of the 2010 census, the population of the city was 32,822. Phenix City lies immediately west across the Chattahoochee River from much larger Columbus, Georgia. Sometimes called Hub City, Phenix City is included in the Columbus, Georgia-Alabama Metropolitan Statistical Area Columbus, Georgia metropolitan area, but a section is located in Lee County, and is, therefore, in the Auburn, Alabama metropolitan area. In 2007, BusinessWeek named Phenix City the nation's #1 Best Affordable Suburb to raise a family. Currently, the mayor is Eddie N. Lowe, the city's first black mayor elected by the public. The city manager, who holds the task of organizational matters, is Wallace Hunter.

Almost Everyone in my neighborhood is elderly and it's a very secure area....I live in a Habitat for Humanity housing area

Senior transportation is poor. We have a public transportation bus, but it has a limited route and limited hours of operation. There are expensive transportation modes. Senior housing and utilities: Housing has a long waiting list. Seniors suffer from occasional forgetfulness and forget to pay a utilities bill on time, which gets their utility disconnected with a steep reconnection fee. Social Security is not enough to cover these extra fees.
