| ||Pipeline Testing||The Permian Express Pipeline will be undergoing inspection and testing in Garland County, January 15-17, 2020 according to information from company representatives. The pipeline runs northeast to southwest across the county. An internal inspection and testing device, commonly known as a pig, will be traveling through the pipeline and company personnel and contractors will be following along the route. Landowners along the pipeline have been notified by letter from the company. The pipeline is filled with inert gas. The pipeline--formerly known as the Pegasus Pipeline-- has been out of service in this region since 2013 after an oil spill in Mayflower, Arkansas.
The Garland County Department of Emergency Management has been notified as a precaution. Garland County Judge Darrly Mahoney is issuing public notice in light of a rupture along an unrelated gas pipeline in north Garland County in May 2019. Mahoney notes that the Permian Pipeline is filled with inert gas and the company has indicated that there is no danger to the public. "We don't want the public to get concerned when they see people in the area and potentially call 911, the Sheriff's Office or the Department of Emergency Management," Mahoney said. "We are aware of this routine testing."

Task force monitoring COVID-19
HOT SPRINGS – A task force has been formed in Hot Springs with representatives from the city, county and state, as well as public safety and health officials. The group has been regularly meeting to assess the most current coronavirus (COVID-19) information and its impact on our citizens and visitors in an effort to make appropriate and timely decisions.
Currently, there are no suspected cases in Garland County, and measures are being taken to mitigate as much risk as possible.
“It is imperative that we, as individuals, take all necessary precautions given our personal health status as we receive additional information on the impact of the coronavirus on various age groups and those with compromised immune systems,” said Hot Springs Mayor Pat McCabe. “Individuals should adjust their activities and the timing of those activities accordingly.”
Mayor McCabe has been a part of the task force meetings, which have been headed by Dr. Gene Shelby, medical consultant, Garland County Health Unit, and included City Manager Bill Burrough, Garland County Judge Darryl Mahoney, Visit Hot Springs CEO Steve Arrison, Hot Springs Fire Chief Ed Davis, Garland County Emergency Management Bo Robertson, Garland County Undersheriff Jason Lawrence and others.
“We need to take the appropriate actions to safeguard our community and our visitors, and we want to do that with the latest information available,” said Judge Mahoney. “This is a very fluid situation. We are staying in contact with public health officials on a daily basis and will act accordingly, being sure to stay within the guidelines of the Arkansas Department of Health.”
As a reminder, public health officials continue to stress the importance of washing hands often, keeping social distance, staying home when sick and disinfecting surfaces often. For more information, visit http://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
