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.

Jasper to explore possibility of reopening city jail

Jasper Police Chief J.C. Poe said the contract between the Jasper Police Department and the Winston County Jail to house the city’s inmates expired April 8. “We had been in discussions with the sheriff and commissioners for approximately three weeks in hopes we would be able to reach an agreement so we could house Jasper’s inmates at the Walker County Jail,” Poe said in a phone interview Thursday. After Sheriff Jim Underwood announced Thursday that space restrictions would not allow Walker County to accommodate Jasper’s inmates, Poe said the city had no choice but to explore options related to reopening the city’s jail.
 

Jasper firefighters show off new rescue truck

Jasper Fire Chief David Clark was like a proud new father Tuesday. After all, he was showing off his — or rather the Jasper Fire Department’s — newest family member. Clark helped debut the department’s new fire rescue truck that was ordered late last year but just delivered last week. Clark, Deputy Fire Chief Alan Clark and Lt. Dante Fields brought the new vehicle to Jasper City Hall Tuesday morning to show it off to Mayor Sonny Posey and members of the Jasper City Council — the driving force behind the purchase of the $150,000 vehicle.“We wouldn’t have this if it wasn’t for the mayor and city council,” Chief David Clark said.

Council delays zoning change after residents oppose request

Jasper City Council members delayed a request for a zoning change after opposition to the change was made during a public hearing Tuesday morning. The council was expected to adopt a resolution to rezone the property at the northwest corner of 19th Street West and 12th Avenue in west Jasper from R-2 (Single Family Residential) to R-3 (Affordable Housing) in order to allow the property owner to place a doublewide mobile home at the site. But Sharon Harris, who lives adjacent to the property, said she opposed the rezoning request. She said numerous other homeowners surrounding the property also oppose the rezoning request. “I just don't want any trailers over there,” Harris said, citing the possibility of decreased property values caused by the addition of mobile homes in her neighborhood.
