Condemned

Sallisaw City street crews demolished a small building on North Oak Street Tuesday that sat next to Jodie Lee's Furniture. Keith Miller, Sallisaw building development director, said the building was condemned by the Sallisaw Board of City Commissioners a couple of months ago after repeated efforts to get the owner to make repairs to the building fell through. Miller said the building had become a health hazard due to the roof collapsing and the building holding water. When crews busted down the front wall Tuesday, he said water came streaming out. The work done by the city will be billed to the property owner who will have about 30 days to pay. After that the property will be assessed and filed against the owner's taxes.
