The Searcy Advertising and Tourism Promotion Commission got the news it was waiting for Tuesday night when the Searcy City Council approved up to $366,000 to completely redo the Berryhill Park tennis courts, including adding pickleball courts.

The amount is 25 percent of the estimated $1.344 million cost. City Clerk/Treasurer Jerry Morris said the money would come from the city’s fund for the eight-year, 1-cent sales tax, which was permanently continued in a special election Nov. 9. He said if the money were to come from the general fund it would be a large commitment.
