Jasper vying for "best community"
The city of Jasper is trying to win a contest against 49 other small cities and towns across the U.S.
A group of volunteers in Jasper applied for the America’s Best Communities contest, and the Dubois County town was chosen as a quarter-finalist.
The top prize is $3 million.
Jasper’s ABC committee will come-up a submission on what the city would do with $3 million.
A news release from the committee says public meetings will be held in the near future to reveal their plans, which will align with Jasper’s Downtown and Riverfront Master Plan.
The committee has also created a Facebook page, and will produce videos of the community.
