New Enterprise Mayor

A week-ago, Tim Alford resigned from his position as the mayor of Enterprise to accept a post under Alabama Gov. Bob Riley.

Since then, the composition of the Enterprise City Council has changed. While it may have changed, officials say they'll continue working for progress.

Local pharmacist Paul Russell has been sworn-in as the newest city council member in Enterprise. He is replacing Kenneth Boswell on the council, who has now become mayor of the city.

Mayor Boswell reassures residents that it'll be a smooth transition and he'll continue to push several infrastructure projects that are already underway.

Paul Russell is a 1978 graduate of Enterprise High School and owns a pharmacy in Enterprise.

At this time, both Boswell and Russell plan to run for their respective offices; the election takes place in august.

The Enterprise city council is planning to host a community wide reception for its residents on Tuesday Jan. 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Enterprise City Hall.
