Council approves $10.9M bond issuance

BY RON HARRIS, DAILY MOUNTAIN EAGLE

Jasper City Council members
approved a rezoning request
Tuesday morning despite a public
outcry against the request from
residents living near the property.
The request to rezone the prop-
erty, which came from property
owner Eddie Miller, involves
changing the zoning classification
from R-1 (single family residen-
tial) to B-2 (community service) at
the corner of West Ridgewood
Road and Alabama Highway 257.
Miller has plans to open a
small, used-car dealership on the
property. That has drawn opposi-
tion from numerous residents liv-
ing near the property.
Council member Sonny Posey
made the motion to adopt the re-
zoning request, and the measure
passed by a 3-1 vote. Council

Jasper City Council members approved issuance of a bond of almost $11 million during a special called meeting Tuesday afternoon.

The $10,980,000 bond will be used for a number of city projects, city clerk Kathy Chambless said. “It’s an exciting day for this city,” Jasper Mayor David O’Mary said during the meeting. The bond issuance passed with a 3-0 vote. Council members Jennifer Williams Smith and Sonny Posey were not at Tuesday’s council meeting.

Matt Adams, a market manager with Raymond James Financial investment company in Birmingham, said the bond initially was thought to have an interest rate of 3.25 percent, but the city will instead secure an interest rate of 3.01 percent. Securing the lower interest rate means about $300,000 in savings for the city, Adams said.

“We are a big winner today,” Chambless said.
