County Courts

Benton County Judge Bob Clinard is studying ways to provide modern, efficient space for the county’s Circuit Court judges, prosecuting attorney, public defender, circuit clerk and their staffs. The current county courthouse was built in 1928. Clinard said a preliminary concept is for a three-story courts building providing 50,000 to 60,000 square feet of space. He said an estimate put the cost of such a building at about $15 million.
