Where to vote in the 2010 Fayetteville millage election

It’s time once again to stretch your democracy legs, put on your election jumpsuit, and exercise your right to vote, Fayetteville.

Today, (Sept. 21) your job is to decide whether or not to approve a 2.75-mil property tax increase to fund Phase 2 of construction for the new Fayetteville High school.

The measure, if passed, would fund the $51 million dollar project through $31.4 million of zero-interest Qualified School Construction Bonds, as well as $19.6 million in traditional bonds.

Phase 1 of construction on the new high school is already underway, and is funded by nearly $45 million in school construction bonds that the district secured for the first phase of construction after last year’s attempt at a millage increase failed. Fayetteville Public Schools Superintendent Vicki Thomas said that the district made $2.5 million in operational budget cuts in order fund Phase 1.

School officials estimate that the impact of the 2.75-mill increase on a $100,000 home would be about $4.58 per month.

If you didn’t make it down to the courthouse to vote early over the last week, here’s some information on polling places for today’s election. Don’t forget about Arkansas Code 7-1-102 which requires that your employer “must create schedules so that each employee will have the opportunity to vote.”
