 Jasper Mayor John Weaver, right, and council member Jim Looney got into a heated discussion during the July council meeting. 

        For the second consecutive month, Jasper Mayor John Weaver and members of the city council butted heads over a few items on the agenda.

At this month’s council meeting, held Monday, June 10th, council member Jim Looney and the mayor were most visibly at odds, with tempers flaring at several points during the evening. The main item of contention was the possible purchase of a new skid steer, which Mayor Weaver brought before council last month but was not approved.
