ROE Sees New Franklin County Home

(BENTON, IL) — The Regional Office of Education office in Franklin County has moved to the new County Annex building, located at 901 Public Square in Benton. It was formerly located in the old County Annex building on West Main. Regional Superintendent Matt Donkin says the Franklin County office will be open 8 to 4 weekdays and the phone number is still 438-9711.Other county offices located in the old County Annex building will be moving to the new facility, formerly known as the Campbell Furniture Building, over the next few weeks. The county decided a few months ago to move the offices out of the old annex building due to several factors including sewer issues, wiring and non-existent handicapped accessibility to the second floor. It’s unknown at this time as to what will happen to the old annex building.
