Bryant Planning and Community Development Director Dave Green will present a set of proposed standards for multifamily housing to the City Council during its regular meeting set for 7 p.m. today in the courtroom at City Hall, 210 SW 3rd St.
Because the construction of apartments has been a contentious issue in the city, Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs and staff attorney Chris Madison have asked that the council only discuss on the proposed rules and delay action until the next meeting to allow time for further review and community input.
Two Benton men were arrested by Benton police Saturday for their alleged involvement with a break-in at the Benton Antique Mall.
Shortly after 9 p.m., officers reportedly responded to the business after an alarm activated. Police reported that a K-9 unit observed a man exiting the rear of the building, which is at 18325 Interstate 30.
Officers said they yelled at the man to stop, but the man, later identified as 53-year-old Terry Johnson, continued to flee on foot. K-9 Officer Lucky reportedly gave pursuit and apprehended Johnson.
