The Hardy Advertising and Promotions Committee held a special meeting to discuss the increased cost of the committee's contract with AETN for their infomercial.

The infomercial airs on AETN during prime television broadcasts and features popular scenes on the Spring River and Hardy area and invites tourists to the area.

The committee voted on whether or not to continue the infomercial despite the increase in cost from $4,200 to $5,000 for the year.

Committee member Peter Martin made a motion to vote on the matter and Sunni Cooper seconded the motion. All members presented voted to continue the contract.

Hardy Mayor Nina Thornton said the commercial could be changed if the committee desired, but that the infomercial was very nice and informational as it was.

The committee will not be conducting a regular meeting during the month of June due to members with other obligations for the meeting date.

The regular monthly meeting of the Hardy Advertising and Promotions Committee will resume in July. The meetings are held at Hardy City Hall the third Wednesday of the month at 5:35 p.m.

It looks like AETN could take an $800 haircut. All the media outlets are not immune to the recession and all are suffering. Either they want the commercial at $4200 or they don't. Negotiate!
