Quotes

"Fort Smith does not have to reinvent the wheel to find solutions.  We can seek guidance from the Arkansas Municipal League. We can look at success stories from other states. Successful pension reform strategies frequently involve creation of a reform coalition, including representatives of key stake holders. To ensure transparency, cities often submit their coalition’s pension reform proposal to voters for approval."
