Enterprise City Hall is nearly out of space and officials there are looking for a solution.
Renita Bowers works in the Enterprise Municipal Court System. It’s located within City Hall. Mrs. Bowers along with other court personnel are finding it difficult to find needed space.
City Hall was constructed in downtown Enterprise back in the mid-1960s, and times have changed.
"Right now we have a lot of paperwork. We really have cramped times during court week, twice a month. I would like to see an improvement," said Bowers.
Longtime Fire Chief Byron Herring says needed files have filled all available space in his department, having additional space would be a great benefit.
"Sometimes we have to go on the ladder to find a file from two or three years ago. It would be nice to have more space," said Chief Herring.
Over recent months the city council has bought several parcels of land either adjacent or near City Hall. Authorities are studying all options to decide what should be done.
Enterprise Mayor Kenneth Boswell said, "We will look and decide what can be done to give us more room at City Hall. All avenues will be studied and placed in the framework of the city budget.”
Officials say they are looking at options, but remaining within the confines of the city budget.
