At A Glance
Benton County is set to open its new Rogers offices today. Sarah Daniels, county comptroller, said the purchase price of the building was $779,270. The county set aside $50,000 last year to begin renovation of the building, Daniels said, and spent $21,643 of that amount in 2013. This year, the county had another $150,000 in the budget and the Quorum Court recently approved spending another $138,900 in added construction costs and $23,000 for moving expenses and chairs. The county’s “commissioned accounts,” which include the assessor and collector, and the Historical Preservation Commission agreed to cover $43,000 of the renovation costs and the county clerk agreed to pay $20,000 in moving expenses.
