A number of city projects expected in coming year

RON HARRIS, DAILY MOUNTAIN EAGLE
Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Jasper City Council members took the first steps Tuesday morning to transfer more than $1.5 million in the city budget that will be used for a variety of capital improvement projects around the city.

Council members heard an introduction of an ordinance to transfer the money from city clerk Kathy Chambless. Because it was an introduction, council members could take no action on the request. They are expected to vote on the matter at the council’s next meeting in two weeks.

Following Tuesday’s meeting, Mayor David O’Mary released a detailed list of projects that are expected to be among the improvements that will be coming in 2020. Among the items listed were the purchase of additional equipment for the city’s police, fire and streets departments, and improvements at the city’s parks.A more detailed story on the capital improvements will be published in future editions of the Eagle.
