JASPER COUNTY — The last census put Jasper County over the 30,000 population point, to 33,000. But for Jasper County this is more than just a sign of growth over the last 10 years. It means the county must now take care of their own weights and measures. And it's beginning to look like the county will need to hire an inspector of weights and measures this year.
Jasper County Commissioners have been looking to other counties with populations over 30,000 to find out what exactly an inspector of weights and measures would be responsible for.
