Benton County is paying $211,000 to replace the rooftop air conditioning unit on the County Administration Building. The current unit has been in use for 17 years. John Sudduth, county director of facilities and construction, said he is working on a report evaluating the status of the heating and cooling systems in all of the county’s buildings that will include a recommended maintenance and replacement schedule.
