Enterprise School Tax Referendum

This week, the Enterprise Chamber Of Commerce Board of Directors approved a resolution urging citizens to approve a property tax proposal during a special referendum next Tuesday.

It’s been nearly two years since a tornado destroyed Enterprise High and Hillcrest Elementary. The rebuilding costs far exceed the funds made available by the federal, state, and local governments. The proposal will set aside a portion of the property tax previously dedicated to the city's health care authority.

Officials stress that it's not a new tax, but a redirecting of the existing 3.5 millage tax.

Besides providing a quality education, a good school system is an important recruitment tool to attract an industry looking to relocate.
