"We've got to do this to move on, we've got to do this to ensure that we offer our children safe places and top private places to be educated,” said former superintendent Thad Morgan.

He shared the reaction of other members of the community, who voiced their opinions following the school board and city presentations.

Dr. Camille wright presented her plans to upgrade school facilities and her request for seventeen million dollars for the project.

She also requested a forgiveness of a current debt of over 500 thousand dollars.

Many people in the community expressed their concerns and their support for the project.

"It's not about you not worrying about the tax, about you not being interested in the schools, or maybe you don't like the people in the school board or anything to do with politics.  It's about helping our schools be safe for everybody in the building," said Enterprise resident Reesa Byrd.

The city also provided the community with the available options, namely, a sales tax increase from 8.5 percent to 9 percent.

The city council will meet tomorrow, and a decision could be made at that time.
