Fort Rucker lost nearly 400 jobs during the last round of base realignment and closure. Wiregrass leaders are working to make sure that doesn't happen next time around.
Cities like Dothan are saying they are willing to pay up to help keep jobs at Fort Rucker.
The city is considering paying $2 per person living in Dothan for the next three years.
That equals out to nearly $131,000 per year. The money will be paid out of the city's general fund.
It will go to The Friends of Fort Rucker to pay the cost of a consultant.
Commissioner Hamp Baxley said he supports the idea.
He said, "We cannot afford to lose Fort Rucker there whatever we can do to keep it here we got to make sure we do that."
Commissioner Critt Snellgrove also said he supports the idea as long as the commission is informed on how the money is spent.
We need to get those people to keep us informed and keep us up to date on what's going on. "
The commission will decide if they will go forward with the matter during Tuesday's commission meeting.
