Plans to Demolish Former Benton Evening News Building Advancing

BENTON – The Franklin County Board received an update regarding plans to demolish the former Benton Evening News building at Monday Night’s meeting.

County Board Chairman Randall Crocker said work has progressed on the demolition to prepare for a new parking lot to ease parking in downtown Benton, particularly when construction begins next year on the new courthouse on the Benton Square.

Crocker added an asbestos inspection of the building was done recently, with none found.

The parking lot project should be completely early next year.
