Located in northwest Alabama on the future 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.

Bid accepted for construction of new Walker High School.

The Jasper City Council approved a bid for $41.79 million from M.J. Harris Construction Services for construction of the new Walker High School. The council voted to accept the bid during its Tuesday morning council meeting. The vote to accept the bid comes on the heels of the Jasper City Board of Education’s vote Monday to also accept the bid. Last week, officials from Hoar Program Management and Lathan Associates Architects — the two primary companies overseeing the project — opened the bids at Maddox Middle School. On hand for that were representatives from the six companies that tendered bids, along with Jasper Mayor Sonny Posey, city schools superintendent Ann Jackson and members of the Jasper City Board of Education. M.J. Harris Construction Services offered the low bid of $41,790,000 — $1.59 million below the proposed budget for construction of the school. The proposed budget for the construction phase of the project was $43,380,000. The remainder of the nearly $10 million of the total cost of the project comes in site prep and architectural, engineering and program management fees. Others offering bids were Baggette Construction Inc. of Decatur; Denark Construction Company of Knoxville, Tennessee; Doster Construction of Birmingham; Bailey Harris Construction Company of Auburn; and J.T. Harrison Construction Company of Tuscaloosa. “We now have firm numbers for the construction of the new Walker High School,” city schools superintendent Ann Jackson said last week following the hour-long bid opening session. “We’re not there yet, but we are cautiously optimistic that with cost-conscious decision-making, we can achieve the goal of having a high school that reflects the needs and values of our community.” Actual construction of the new school should start within a couple weeks.
