BENTONVILLE -- Benton County's justices of the peace on Thursday agreed to seek more information from voters on how to pay for the proposed county courts building.

County court election

Benton County officials face a March 13 deadline to get a funding plan for the proposed new courts building on the May 22 primary election ballot. An ordinance calling for an election on that date requires three readings by the Quorum Court, meaning the justices of the peace would have to suspend their normal rules and have the ordinance read more than once at either its January or February meetings or hold a special meeting.
