Fort Smith’s new leader addressed the city for the first time.
As part of his State of the City Address Wednesday, Mayor George McGill spoke about how great of a place Fort Smith is to live, work and play.
He said the manufacturing industry within the city is strong, as is the education system.
But he did mention there’s still a lot of work to do.
“Where we are used to be our future, but today is simply a starting place to where we want to go,” McGill said.
McGill also said work needs to continue with a clear vision of the future for Fort Smith to continue to grow and prosper.
