Benton County’s justices of the peace will continue their discussion on paying for a new $30 million courts building when the Finance Committee meets again. Tom Allen, committee chairman, said he expects to call a special meeting sometime in March. The county hopes to have a funding proposal on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.
