City of Sallisaw commissioners approved the final sale of the old Cellofoam building in the city's industrial park to Sequoyah Enterprises for a price of $950,000. The board approved the sale, by the Sallisaw Economic Authority, at the commission's meeting Monday evening. Sequoyah Enterprises has announced the building will be remodeled and leased to the Sequoyah County Department of Human Services. City Manager Bill Baker said the sale is expected to close within the next few days. The commission also approved that the existing debt on the property, $43,353.28, owed to the Sallisaw Improvement Corporation, was paid in full. The sale of the property and removal of the debt, Baker said, "is going to help us immensely with our budget."
Commissioners also honored Paul Richards, (shown above), superintendent at the water treatment plant, for his 25 years of service. Richards was presented with the Oklahoma Municipal League's 25-years service award.
