The City of Jasper Animal Shelter has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Petco Foundation. Sallie Cowen, the public information assistant for the City of Jasper, wrote the grant back in July, and the shelter was recently notified that they will receive the grant funding in the coming weeks.

Area economic officials held an open house event Thursday morning to mark the completion of a new spec building in the Jasper Industrial Park. The Spec 5 building is a 53,000 square foot metal shell building that can easily be expanded to over 100,000 square feet.
Located in northwest Alabama on Interstate Highway 22, Jasper is a thriving retail hub, center of growing industrial development and home to approximately 14,000 residents. Enjoying one of the top ranked education systems in the State of Alabama, ongoing renovated Park & Recreation programs and its close proximity to the outstanding recreation areas such as Smith Lake, Bankhead National Forest and the Warrior River makes it an attractive area for relocation. Mayor V. L. “Sonny” Posey would like to welcome you to our city and web site.
