Sallisaw Makes Plans for Lime

The City of Sallisaw is now in the lime business.

City Manager Clayton Lucas II said Monday the city received permission from the State Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) about a month ago to use the lime stockpiled near the intersection of Cherokee and Kerr Boulevard.

"They said it was safe to sell," Lucas said.

Lucas said some of the lime may be used to stabilize the base of new taxi lanes at Sallisaw Municipal Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded the city a grant for the project for future hanger construction. The city must match the grant with $51,181.50.

Bronze Oak LLC of Broken Arrow was awarded the contract for $360,948.50, and construction is now underway.

Lucas said the city may also use the lime for ground cover at the landfill, for which it must also have DEQ approval, and may consider using or selling it as fertilizer.

The property reverted to the city when a lime mining company gave up ownership.
