A new energy transmission line for Entergy Arkansas will soon be located in Benton; however, a number of area residents have expressed some serious concerns about this type of project.
Benton Utilities' Electric Department has issued a formal news release about a new energy transmission line for Entergy Arkansas being located in the city.
The announcement, issued by Jeff Barnett, manager of the department, is being made primarily for informational purposes to alert Benton Utilities customers to anticipated construction related to the installation of the high-voltage line.
A married couple from Benton face numerous charges for allegedly breaking into multiple storage buildings throughout Saline County, according to Benton police.
Lt. Kevin Russell said that any individuals renting or owning a storage building in the local area should inspect it to ensure that they also are not a victim of theft. If a unit is found to be burglarized, the individual should call the local police department.
"I would also encourage people to periodically check them just to ensure their property is safe," Russell said.
