FORT SMITH – The Fort Smith School Board will meet tonight to decide whether or not to ask voters for a millage increase. If approved, it would be the first hike for taxpayers in the district since 1987.

Currently, Fort Smith enjoys the lowest millage in the county.

A number of projects are to be considered in the ask to voters, including ninth grade centers, storm shelters, and gymnasiums. Expansions at Northside and Southside High Schools along with a new career and technology center could be in the cards as well.

If approved by the board, the issue will be put on the ballot in a May 22nd special election.
