       There were no shortage of changes at city hall on Monday, Jan. 6 when Steve Lawrence led his first council meeting as Jasper’s new mayor. Not only was the city’s top elected official a new face after 27 years, but council hired a new lead attorney and replaced their CFO with an interim. 

The January council meeting was just a few days after Lawrence and three council members – Jim Looney, Kirk Raffield, and John Foust - took the oath of office at a swearing-in ceremony on Friday, Jan. 3.  All elected officials were sworn in by Pickens’ Chief Magistrate Judge Allen Wigington.
