Jasper Council violates state law with closed meeting

jaspercouncilmtg

At a Jasper council meeting on Monday, Jan. 8, council entered into closed meeting without following state Sunshine Laws. 

The Progress sent notice Friday asking for all notes and the audio recording of the portion of the closed Jasper City Council meeting where the council deliberated on the mayor/city manager position.

During the January 8th meeting, Weaver was not re-appointed as city manager, a position he has held for more than two decades. Instead the council indicated they will appoint sitting council member Jim Looney as city manager for an interim period, while they interview for a permanent replacement. Looney’s appointment was delayed as questions arose about whether he needed to resign his council seat. It is expected to be taken up at the February meeting.
