BENTONVILLE -- Benton County residents will be able to quiz officials at town hall meetings this month. County Judge Barry Moehring said he will make a brief presentation on roads, the proposed courts building and other issues, invite other elected officials to speak and then open the floor to questions and comments. "We'll be there to answer any questions," Moehring said. The first meeting was scheduled at Pea Ridge City Hall on Monday, but additional meetings are upcoming in Lowell on Feb. 12 and in Decatur on Feb. 26. Moehring said he expects these gatherings to be similar to last year's. At those sessions, he said, county roads were the most frequently raised topic. Moehring said he thinks roads will dominate this year, even though the county is working on a $25 million courts building.
