Remodeled Benton County Clerk's office opens today

By the Tri-City HeraldJanuary 30, 2013 

The doors will roll up for the first time today on the new public windows at the Benton County Clerk's Office.

The remodel forced the clerks to set up a makeshift office in nearby Courtroom D. Construction started Jan. 1 and wrapped up at the start of this week.

The $86,500 project replaced the clerk's office lobby with five separate, inset windows, each with its own roll-up door, so citizens will have some privacy.

Two windows face directly into the hallway for criminal collections. Three windows are around the corner nearly Courtroom D and a secured entrance to the clerk's office.

Clerk Josie Delvin held an impromptu ribbon-cutting late Tuesday afternoon with several staff members.
