City working with Alabama Power to upgrade lighting to LED

BY RON HARRIS, DAILY MOUNTAIN EAGLE
Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Some 2,800 light fixtures in the city will soon be converted to LED lighting, Jasper Mayor David O’Mary announced during Tuesday’s city council meeting.

O’Mary said the city is working closely with Alabama Power Co., which will provide all the LED fixtures and accessories, as well as installation of the lighting.

The project, which is expected to begin in about three months, should be completed by the end of the year, O’Mary said. 

And it involves more than just changing light bulbs, he said. 

“The light fixtures will be removed and new fixtures will be installed,” he said. 

The change to LED will enhance the city’s appearance, as well as raise awareness on the environment.

“What does this mean to the city? It says something to our thoughts about the environment,” O’Mary said. “The less electricity you use, the less impact you have on our environment.”

The mayor said officials from Alabama Power Co. have been instrumental in helping the project proceed.

“The way Alabama Power has helped this city has been tremendous,” O’Mary said. 

The city will also receive designation from the state as a ‘Smart City’ because of the change to LED lighting, O’Mary said. 

“When it’s completed, Jasper is going to look like a different city,” he added. “It’s going to change the complexion of the city. I’m really excited about this. This is a decision that I think you will be proud of.”

In other business, council members:

•approved minutes of the May 15 minutes.

•were presented a replica of  a ‘Welcome to Jasper’ sign placed on Industrial Boulevard by Anthony Christian and Paul Kennedy of the Rotary Club of Jasper, which spearheaded the project to construct the sign. Also present were Rotary Club members Lou Vick and Britton Lightsey.

•approved a request for a special events permit in order to close portion of a city street in District 5 for a graduation party on Saturday, June 16. The approval is contingent on any concerns by the Jasper Police Department.

•adopted an amendment to the city’s budget, and introduced a separate amendment to the budget.

•adopted a resolution to allow O’Mary to enter into a contract with Pavecon to pave a portion of the railroad crossing at Highland Avenue just off Old Birmingham Highway. Burlington Northern Railroad just completed its part of a remodeling project at the crossing. 

“Burlington Northern did a marvelous job reconditioning that crossing,” O’Mary said, “and asked if we could do our part with the asphalt. We agreed that the city would do its part to help with the paving.” The cost to the city is $6,096. The crossing, which is currently closed to traffic, is expected to be reopened by some time next week.  “This will be a rail crossing that will serve our city for many, many years, and is certainly long overdue,” O’Mary said.

•adopted a resolution to award a bid for a water line replacement and street drainage project on Alabama Avenue and in conjunction with the Jasper Waterworks and Sewer Board to Tren-Tay, Inc. The project is expected to cost a little more than $300,000, with the city responsible for $170,000 of that. “This would be negligent on our part to not do this,” O’Mary said. Work is expected to begin in the next 60 days.

•heard O‘Mary announce that the city’s animal shelter may soon be operated by the Greater Birmingham Humane Society. “Operating an animal shelter has been challenging for the city for a long time,” the mayor said, “so we have been looking at how we can improve this situation.” O’Mary said city officials have met with officials from the Greater Birmingham Humane Society four times in recent months — the last meeting held Monday — and have worked to come up with an agreement to have GBHS take over operations of the city shelter. “Those folks have a tremendous track record,” O’Mary said, “… and they have the expertise to do this.” O’Mary said the Alabama League of Municipalities requires such a deal to be bid out, and city leaders are in the process of putting together a bid proposal to assume control of the animal shelter. “We really don’t think we’ll see any group other than the Greater Birmingham Humane Society bid on this,” O’Mary said. “This will put us a step closer to having and animal shelter that we can be proud of and will represent our city well.”
