Commissioners discuss road projects
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - The Sequoyah County Commissioners held their weekly meeting at the courthouse on Monday morning at 10:00 a.m.
The County Commissioners discussed, approved, and signed the plan title page for the Garvin Branch project (BOCC). The plan is for construction work to begin on the bridge just north of Central High School.
A detour route was submitted to commissioners and will be delivered to the superintendent of Central High School for bus routing purposes.
The bridge construction will begin once the Redwood project in Sallisaw is finished, which is set to be completed by the end of the month.
During the citizens' presentation, District 3 County Commissioner Jim Rogers said, "I sat in on a meeting last Friday with the City of Sallisaw economic development and there are really a lot of great things going on right now."
"I made a comment about all our elected officials and what a great job they have done in the past 11 years. They have made a 1.6-million-dollar swing and went from a $750,000 deficit to a $903,000 carryover from last year. That credit really goes back to all the county elected officials who are doing a great job and taking care of business," Rogers added.
In new business, there was discussion and approval of the declaration of surplus for the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s office regarding the following: 2011 Dodge Charger, 2016 Chevy Tahoe, 2010 Chevy Tahoe, 2013 Chevy Silverado LT, and 2012 Chevy Silverado.
