At the inaugural 2012 Jasper City Council Meeting, Jasper City Mayor and council members took their oaths of office. In November, Mayor John Weaver, Jim Looney, Tony Fountain, and John Foust were reelected to their current offices. At the January city council meeting, the quartet was sworn in by Municipal Court Judge James T. Johnson.
