A new radar speed sign was installed and is now fully operational outside the High School! This sign will give drivers a visual warning to ensure they have slowed to 25 miles per hour prior to entering the school zone. Special thanks to Benton County Secondary Roads, the City of Van Horne, Benton Community Maintenance staff, and Deputy Brandt for putting this in place. #BeABobcat #APlaceToBelong
