The first meeting of 2023 for the Benton City Council had a lengthy agenda, and new faces on the bench. Councilman Guy Henton and Councilwoman Laura Craynon were sworn in at the end of the December 2022 meeting.
The council heard the annual audit review from CPA Kim Ham. “The city had a good audit again,” said Hamm, pointing out a few items that have changed with reporting. She issued an unmodified opinion, with nothing raising concern.
