Benton County offices will be opening 15 June by appointment only. You will be screened at the door and be required to wear a face mask at all times while in the building. I am currently available during business hours via phone or email.

We are unable to give rides to the VA at this time per VA's guidelines, please find alternative transportation or re-schedule your appointment if able.

I will not be conducting business hours in Belle Plaine in June due to the Coronavirus. Otherwise, the office will be working out of Belle Plaine the first Wednesday of every month.  I will be in the Council Chambers of City Hall from 9am-3:30pm. 


The Benton County Veterans Affairs Office hours are 8am-4:30pm.  Walk-Ins are always welcome, although it is encouraged to make an appointment to ensure that I am in the office and not elsewhere assisting another Veteran.
