City eyes investing in schools

ENTERPRISE, Ala. -- Enterprise City Schools are asking for help from the city council to fund a $16.5 million improvement plan designed in part to bolster the community's support of the Army's nearby Fort Rucker. At a joint work session last week of the school board and city council, Enterprise Mayor Kenneth Boswell applauded the school superintendent for helping the city prepare for an impending BRAC round. "I sit on the Military Stability Commission for the state of Alabama, and education has been at the focus of every meeting over the last year or so. So for this board to listen to and to be prepared for a potential BRAC, that is very forward thinking for the school system and for our city," Boswell said.
