Hardy City Council met in their regular bi-monthly meeting at the Hardy City Hall Sept 1.
The Go-Green Committee read their report and the group also submitted a reminder to the newspaper to remind area residents that only natural debris such as tree and lawn waste should be burned in the city, not building materials such as shingles, tires or other items.
Hardy Mayor Nina Thornton invited area pastors to the council meeting to discuss the city's options in respect to the liquor issue if Sharp County were to become a wet county. All the pastors who were present were in favor of the county remaining dry, although one did voice his opinion that he believed in democracy and that residents should have a right to vote on the issue.
The city agreed to give Billy Gilbreath, Road and Street Superintendent his worker's compensation time.
Upcoming events include music in the Hardy Gym on Sept. 5 and Sept. 19. The Pow-Wow will be held Sept. 25-27 in Loberg Park and FNBC will host a flea market Sept. 26 on the bank parking lot at Hardy.
Thornton said that for the next meeting, she has invited Hardy residents to attend with their opinions regarding the wet/dry issue. She said everyone will be given an opportunity to speak in an orderly fashion regarding to options for Hardy to consider in the event the county becomes wet.
