July 12, 2012

Septic tank disposal operators are finding themselves at odds with Benton city officials.
Terry McKinney, general manager of Benton Utilities, and the Public Utilities Commission have recommended that the city disallow the discharge of residential and industrial waste from residential and commercial waste haulers into the Benton Wastewater System.
The first reading of an ordinance that would prohibit this practice was presented at a City Council meeting Monday night.
Several haulers attended the meeting to protest the action which, they say, will effectively put them out of business.
