Enterprise Mayor Kenneth Boswell delivered his 2014 State of the City address this afternoon.
It kicked off with a lunch and a prayer, followed by the mayor’s address. He says he takes pride in everything the city accomplished in 2013, especially creating jobs.
”Being able to recruit HSA to bring 100 more jobs in the city, not only that, but the recruitment of Alabama Aircraft Support, and then seeing our downtown grow at the rate it has, is beyond words,” said Boswell.
But he says there's some unfinished work to complete over the next several months.
“I'd like to see the resurfacing done, really that's our first and foremost thing that we're trying to get finished. Others would be seeing City Hall come to fruition, and just other projects that we have planned for the year."
City councilman Tommy Johnson says the city is proud to be named the 6th best city in the state, and he discussed his top goal for the year.
"To have more cohesiveness in our city... We work very closely now with our school system, with our hospital, with our nursing home… we want to continue doing that, and continue to make it a better quality of life for the citizens in Enterprise,” said Johnson.
Boswell says there are other opportunities knocking at the city's door. And before we could even ask what those were…
"I can't tell you what they are, I won't tell you what they are,” said Boswell.
We'll just have to wait to see what those opportunities are. And since Boswell says “the best is yet to come,” the future of Enterprise looks bright.
