Benton city leaders on Thursday will meet to discuss fixing a “sinkhole” at 2808 Cypress Point Dr. in Longhills Village.

Mayor David Mattingly told The Courier on Wednesday morning he first learned about the sinkhole about a week ago when the homeowner sent him an email. It was first estimated to cost about $3,000 to fix, but Mattingly said that price grew to $22,000 when he decided to fix it permanently.
