Hardy Businessmen Create New Concept With Old Technology

2698115-lMaking something useful from something ordinary is no new concept for local craft artist and digital decorator, Marc Herring and his business associate, Hal Mandelman. Their latest project, “Get a Round TUIT'” with a QR, or as he calls it, a Matrix code, will open new doors for local businesses when it comes to customer retention and growth.

Although you may be familiar with the traditional QR code, which is generally a checkerboard style black and white square printed onto items varying from food to furniture; Herring has taken it one step further by creating a working 3D version on his TUITs.

Hardy City Council Strives To Improve Budget And Involvement

2686626-hHardy City Council has been making great strides to improve the city under the new leadership of Mayor Jason Jackson. Improvements in each department are underway and were discussed at the two city council meetings held in September.

On Sept. 6, recorder/treasurer Myranda Hobbs informed council members that she is closer to getting a budget to actually report ready for them, but it isn’t quite ready yet.

“We are still in the same spot, trying to get the budget all filled in,” said Hobbs. She gave an update on what she is currently working on and told the council to expect working meetings to determine line items and getting the budget in working order, before a report can be presented.

Cameras Installed To Keep Watch In Hardy

2681340-lThe Hardy Police Department is taking a proactive approach to crime by installing cameras along Main Street.

According to Hardy Police Chief Scott Rose, he hopes the cameras will serve as a deterrent and help prevent crime.

“We’ve had some recent criminal activity on Main Street and you’re aware of the tagging that was done to the buildings,” Rose said referring to historical buildings being spray painted with graffiti. “I’m a fan of preventing crime as much as I am of catching someone [in the act]. Cameras are the first step in prevention and it’s a great deterrent. It’s not to spy on anyone. It’s to prevent crime and help solve it as it happens.”
