The Benton Advertising & Promotions Commission met Friday, June 15, 2017. Commissioners heard from Benton Event Center staff about attendance totals in recent events. Alderman Jerry Ponder recommended a method to pay off a bond early to save over $700,000. Representatives from the Farmer’s Market pavilion and the Amplify concert made funding requests. The A&P tax and balance were reviewed, noting some businesses are late and the amount collected so far this year is over $197,000.
