While Benton County’s 2013 budget is essentially set, county officials still have some financial questions to answer.

At A Glance

Elected Officials’ Pay

Benton County’s elected officials are slated to receive a 2 percent pay increase in 2013, if the Quorum Court approves the budget as drafted by its Budget Committee. County employees are also set to receive a 2 percent pay increase. The Budget Committee also approved an increase in salary for the County Coroner of $5,900, which is separate from the 2 percent raise for that position.
