Benton Township Receives Community Re-Invest Funding

The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented a $10,000 check to members of the Benton Township Athletic Association to upgrade its Little League complex. The project entails installing drainage in the outfield, constructing a covered pavilion, and repairing the dugouts, storage shed and concession stand. The County’s Community Re-Invest Program is designed to strengthen local neighborhoods by assisting them with local funding for various expansion and enhancement projects.
