Whether you are a resident or a visitor, we hope you find the information on this web 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.

Steve Cary, Mayor
