A Boil Water Advisory remains in effect for all of the water customers of the Benton Municipal Water & Sewer Authority until further notice. This is a precaution due to some coloration abnormalities noticed in some of the drinking water. An investigation is underway to determine reason/cause of this abnormality. As a precaution, a Boil Water Advisory has been issued.
A Boil Advisory means that if you use tap water for drinking or cooking, the water should be brought to a rolling boil for 1-2 min prior to consumption.
For many years, Benton Borough has taken a relaxed stance on parking laws. Due to recent complaints and safety concerns, the Borough Police will now be enforcing all State Parking Laws. The main issue for most residents is parking the correct direction. If your vehicle is in violation, the vehicle will be cited for a $25 parking fine. Please also be aware that you can be cited for parking on the wrong side of the street and when the vehicle moves, you can also be cited for driving on the wrong side of the road.
Benton Borough will begin enforcement immediately.
