Business of the Year

Benton & Associates, Inc. was awarded Business of the Year (25 or more employees) at the 2019 Chamber Annual Meeting.

When the Jacksonville water treatment plant flooded in 2011, Benton and Associates helped the City and community get the water supply running again. They have since assisted the City in securing funding, including low interest loans and grants, designing a new, modern water treatment plant and provided construction administration and observation throughout construction. The new water plan is a source of not only clean water for our community but an economic development enticement for those reviewing Jacksonville as a possible locale.

Benton & Associates are an excellent supporter of their community with involvement in and contributions to the Jacksonville Area Chamber of Commerce, Prairieland United Way, Passavant Area Hospital, JREDC, Jacksonville Main Street, Ambucs, Kiwanis, Rotary, Elks, Jacksonville Public Schools Foundation and many other civic and social service organizations.
