applications for the positions of:
Senior Building Inspector
The City of Enterprise has a strong history of growth and progress. Its diversity of people, occupations, lifestyles and interests come
together to produce the community spirit that has been passed down for generations. The residents of Enterprise still enjoy the security of a concerned smaller city, even though it has become larger and more progressive. The
people are warm and accepting of all who visit or choose to live in Enterprise. The deep South friendliness combined with the new South
progressive attitude make Enterprise a
wonderful place to visit, to call home and to raise a family. Today's Enterprise is a far cry from the piney woods with two small wagon roads running through what is now a densely populated area.The founder of Enterprise, John Henry Carmichael, moved to Coffee County and settled in the area in 1881. Carmichael built a small store on what is now North Main Street. In 1882 as others moved to the area, the post office was moved from Drake Eye, located about 5 miles north, to Carmichael's new
community. Enterprise was incorporated in 1896 with a population of 250. Two years later the Alabama Midland Railway Company located in Enterprise and with it came growth and progress. By 1906 the population grew to 3,750.
Because early residents believed so much in their own town, they had a battle cry in the form of a banner stretched across the street saying, "Pull for Enterprise or Pull Out."
