Benton’s current City Hall will be closing today so city employees can move to their new location which opens for business on Monday. The new city hall will be in the former Benton Grade School District Offices located at 1403 South Main. City leaders would have had to spent $2 million dollars to bring the old building up to code so instead they bought the new building for $550,000 from the school district. The Benton Police Department will be staying at the old City Hall while its new building is being completed for next year.
