Prior to Hardy City Council’s regular meeting May 1, the city released a statement revealing approximately $150,000 had been received from Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM). During the council meeting, Mayor Jason Jackson shared his suggestions on where the money should be spent.
The press release issued by the city explained where the money is coming from. “The City of Hardy received $149,019.31 from the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM) on Wednesday, April 18. These funds represent the state’s 12.5 percent share of the approximately $1.2 million received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for a disaster in 2008. While the city was informed they could receive the funds, ADEM had not offered exactly when.”

Hardy Public Works crew preparing the forms for next bit of concrete on the Helicopter Pad at the Robin Hood Exit of the Hardy Truck Route. Money and Materials for this work were provided by Survival Flight, Sharp County, the Woodland Hills Property Owners Association, and others. The Hardy Heli-Pad will be around the corner from the Sharp County Ambulance Station in Hardy and accessible from all major highways in northern Sharp County.
This facility will be illuminated for night landings and hopefully eliminate the need to close a highway for an emergency helicopter landing.
