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.

Council remembers former colleague PDF Print E-mail

Jasper City Council members spent time Tuesday morning remembering a former longtime council member who passed away earlier in the morning.

Council members praised the more than two decades that Lee Swann served as a member of the city council.

Swann died at 4:45 Tuesday morning at his home in Jasper. He was 81.

Swann served for 24 years on the city council. He chose not to seek re-election and was replaced on the council by Jennifer Williams Smith.

“There was nobody who cared more about Jasper than Lee Swann,” council member Gary Cowen said at the beginning of Tuesday’s meeting. “He loved this community and the community loved him.”

“I could not have done some of the things I did without Lee,” added council member Sandi Sudduth, who served on the council with Swann.

Mayor Sonny Posey spent 16 years serving with Swann as both a member of the city council and as mayor and said he will miss his friend.

“I came to respect him, not because we always agreed because we didn’t,” Posey said. “But I could always walk out of here and respect him. We were always buddies.”
