Benton City Council Approves Runway Remarking Project, Other Items at Monday’s Meeting

BENTON – The Benton City Council Monday night approved an intergovernmental agreement for the pavement marking-remark runway project at the Benton Municipal Airport.

City Clerk Brook Craig says work will begin in the near future, but there’s no exact date as to when it will start.  

The Council also approved closing the alley at 11089 East Anna and approved Jared Emberton as a paid-on-call firefighter for the Benton Fire Department.

The City Council will hold a special meeting Friday morning at City Hall to open the bids received for mosquito abatement and to discuss and/or approve awarding the bid for mosquito abatement.
