JASPER, Ga. – The City Council approved three major events for the Jasper Merchants Association (JMA) accompanying closing of Main Street in Downtown Jasper.
Usually spread across the entirity of the Fall Season as the JMA requests the road closure for these events, this year, with the help of City Manager Brandon Douglas, they made one request including all three events. Citizens should be aware of this road closure for the following days:
Thursday, October 31, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for the Halloween Event.
Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the Christmas Parade, with the parade to start at 6 p.m.
Tuesday, December 31, 2019, from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. for the New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Not associated with the JMA, Main Street will also be closed for the Prevent Child Abuse Pickens Long Table event on September 21, 2019, from Noon until midnight.
The city has received four bids for their paving contract for road paving. The apparent low bidder came to be Northwest Georgia Paving, Inc. with a bid of $1,217,062.50. Approved by the council, the paving contract has been awarded.
