Charles Williams was voted in earlier this week.

He's been filling in as the interim City manager since the board fired Larry Cail in December because of conduct issues.

Williams says he's excited about Jasper's future and ready to get to work.

"We do have some goals and some aspirations for the City of Jasper. We would like to see some downtown revitalization, said Williams. "We like to see some industrial and commercial growth. I think Jasper's best days are still ahead of her."

This is Williams first stint as a city manager but he says he's held other management positions and believes he can get the job done.

    Charles Williams is a personal friend of mine and I think well of him. But I do not like the way the city counsel ousted my good friend Larry Cail. Larry did nothing unlawful in his letting go an employee during worker probation. It was his right and his job. An unlawful termination suit should be entered. Good luck Charles....just don't unpack your bags. The counsel is fickle! Next week they will probably fire you. There is speculation that sunshine laws were violated by council members having secret meetings before the vote to remove Cail. One of those counsel members was/is not residing within the City Limits and two own un-kept trailer parks that violate City cleanliness ordinances for proper maintenance, and cleanliness. The chief bottle washer of the anti-Cail sub-council is one who is a historical disgruntled, unhappy soul and city resident that was a chronic complainer about everything the City was doing or not doing....also a repeated violator of City cleanliness ordinance
