The picture with this entry is of the Benton County Law Enforcement Center (LEC) being demolished. The demolition began about a week ago. The LEC was destroyed during last year's flood despite a valiant effort by many volunteers to save it. A new LEC will be built in its place above the level of last year's flood. This week, the City of Vinton is also closing on the first six properties in its buy-out program. These are good examples of how the community is still moving forward in the flood recovery process.
