Benton City Council Expected to Act on Parking Restriction Ordinance

BENTON – The Benton City Council is expected to act on an ordinance amending parking restrictions for the outer parking spots on the Benton Square when it meets tonight at 6 at City Hall.

This issue was discussed at the meeting two weeks ago, but nothing was decided upon as specifics were not detailed.

Several merchants on and off the square recently addressed their parking concerns with the city council, saying parking in front of their businesses shouldn’t be for employees of any of the square businesses or the countyn but rather for customers only. They also noted concerns about parking when demolition starts on the old courthouse soon, and when new courthouse construction begins later this year.
