Whether you are a visitor or a resident, we hope you find the information on this site enjoyable and helpful.  Our goal is to provide a resource of City Government information and use the internet to keep the City Hall open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As Mayor, I am committed to making our community a better place to live, work and raise a family. Benton's greatest asset is our citizens and their willingness to work together. As Mayor I invite you to take a look around our City and discover a community rich in history while focused on the future.

We want the City of Benton to be a community that is safe, clean, healthy and prosperous. A special place we are proud to call home. A proactive community that draws its strength from its heritage while respecting the dignity of the individual. We intend to meet this challenge by: encouraging citizen participation, responding to the collective needs of the community, and serving the public trust with fairness and integrity.

Rita Dotson, Mayor




The Marshall County Recycling Department has recently joined with the City of Benton in helping residents get rid of old appliances. Beginning in August 2015 on the 1st Tuesday of each month, the Marshall County Recycling Department will pick up the following items:

Water heaters


Refrigerator/Freezors - there must not be any food left in these

Air conditioner units

Cook stoves

In order to have one of these items picked up, you must contact Marshall County Recycling at 270-527-2743.  These items must be put at the end of the driveway by the street as they cannot come on anyone's property to get them.
