The Benton Police Department has a specific issue that it focuses on each month. During the month of June, it will focus on criminal activities at city parks.
These activities include vehicle racing, possible drug use, people fighting and people using vulgar language or slurs near children.
Benton Public Utilities Commission met Monday night to amend the customer service rules and regulations ordinance.
This ordinance was discussed previously at the commission's May 5 and was brought to the City Council on May 12 to be heard on its first reading.
The ordinance would raise the fees associated with installing water meters. However, the council was unwilling to approve a fee increase at that time.
