City of Progress

Although the national economy may be in a slump, Enterprise city leaders said there's been no slowdown in the "City of Progress."

Officials said new businesses are going up and existing ones are expanding.

The city council this week approved a $22.5 million budget.

The Enterprise Chamber of Commerce will receive $50,000 and an additional $40,000 goes to the Economic Development Corporation.

Enterprise Mayor Tim Alford said the chamber is instrumental to the recruitment of new industry.
