20 years and still working together

Two names synonymous with the Jasper Fire Department celebrated a milestone last week. Fire Chief David Clark and Deputy Fire Chief Alan Clark each marked their 20th anniversary working with the department. Both were hired as full-time firefighters on the same day — July 10, 1995. "That's 40 years of combined experience," Alan said. David and Alan are cousins, not brothers like many think, but they are as close as any brothers are. "Everybody thinks we're brothers," David said. "From the time we were 16, maybe 17 years old, we've run around together because his closest brother was 10 years older than David," Alan said. "We were pretty much raised up together. We've played softball together, gone to church together, pretty much everything." And both knew early on they wanted to be firefighters.  More From The Daily Mountain Eagle

The AED was donated by a private business owner in Walker County that asked to remain anonymous.More - Daily Mountain Eagle - City presented portable AED for parks department


City takes steps to cut energy costs

Jasper City Council members voted Tuesday to enter into a contract with a Carrollton, Texas-based company to cut the city’s energy costs. The council, in a 4-1 vote, gave Mayor Sonny Posey its permission to sign contracts with Schneider Electric, a company that delivers integrated, customized energy efficiency solutions, according to its website. Council President Jed Daniel cast the lone vote against the project. Following Tuesday’s council meeting, Posey said the project is a “win-win situation” for the city. “What this will do is allow us to replace existing dilapidated, antiquated infrastructure in the form of HVAC units, lighting and telecommunications equipment,” Posey said. “Every department in the city will benefit from this in some way.” More from Daily Mountain Eagle


Jasper receives designation from Main Street Alabama

Jasper has joined the list of Main Street Alabama’s designated communities, local leaders announced Monday. The nonprofit organization, which uses a four-point approach to revitalize downtown areas, selects three new communities annually through a competitive application process. Jasper stood out in the recent field of applicants because the city “demonstrated strong community partnerships, an impressive organizational structure with exceptional leadership and ability to financially support its program,” state coordinator Mary Helmer noted in a press release regarding the selection. Debbie Young Sanders, president of the Jasper Downtown Business Association, said that she was thrilled by the news of the designation. “It is going to mean really good things for our town and the whole community. It’s a program that has been proven throughout the state and the country to bring jobs, dollars and people into our downtown,” Sanders said. More from the Daily Mountain Eagle
