The old Entegra Bank drive-thru property, now owned by the city of Jasper, is one of several projects council took action on at their March meeting.
After their regular meeting adjourned on Monday, March 2, Jasper Council Member Kirk Raffield said “this is a council in action.”
Raffield’s comment referred to the Jasper City Council’s two-day retreat the previous weekend, in which Jasper Mayor Steve Lawrence, council, department heads, city employees, and others were in attendance. As a result of the retreat, council directed the city manager to either immediately begin work on or to collect quotes for numerous projects.
Mayor Lawrence, along with other members of council, felt the retreat was productive and positive move for the city.
