BENTON TOWNSHIP — Benton Township is in the early stages of a partial sewer system project, but first needs to secure permission from more than a dozen property owners.

At Tuesday’s board meeting, trustees agreed to pay Prien & Newhoff no more than $130,000 to reach out to property owners of 14 parcels to secure a preferred route for the proposed sewer project.
