City of Searcy offers up Pothole Hotline


SEARCY, Ark. (Searcy) - "Due to the unusually harsh winter, the City of Searcy has experienced an increased number of potholes. This is a direct result of moisture penetrating the cracks in the asphalt paving which freezes and thaws weakening the pavement. As traffic passes over the weakened areas, potholes soon develop," said Searcy Mayor David Morris. "

To address this concern, the City is establishing a 'Pothole Hotline' and is requesting assistance from the public in locating all the potholes in need of repair".

Please call Searcy City Hall (Pothole Hotline) at 268-2483 to give the location of potholes.



THIS HOTLINE IS TO REPORT POTHOLE ISSUES WITHIN THE CITY OF SEARCY ONLY.

Mobility van could give woman independence for first time in 16 years

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) is giving local heroes from across the country a chance to win a custom Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. One of the local heroes nominated for the competition is from right here in central Arkansas.

Becky Justice, a 38-year-old from Cabot, has been proving people wrong most of her life. Affected with Spina Bifida*, Justice said she fought her school in the early 1990s to make the campus wheelchair accessible rather than giving in and finding a different school. Now, she’s trying to once again to gain her independence through a contest made possible by NMEDA.

 “I was told that I helped to start the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) because of my part in helping to make the school wheelchair accessible,” Justice wrote on her NMEDA entry.
