Tell me the smallest community you ever seen Home Depot or lowes in. They not coming to Sallisaw cause we not big enough. No tax base to support a big box store like this. Geeze use some common sense.

Next rumor will be we were getting a SAMs store. Lol.

Judy works hard for this community. She has done a wonderful job keeping things organized and going

One thing you do have right is NOTHING is coming here under our current leadership. I don't know much about Judy but I do know Shannon Vann is not what Sallisaw needs.
agree

If this is Joe Peters you need to crawl back under the the rock you came from or maybe go scratch your pastors back. You're an idiot and everyone knows it.

What I want to know is how much revenue the city tax receipts on sales prior to sales tax increase then what they have been through Dec.2012 after the increase was implemented.

There's a question about growth within the city then it could be found out by subtracting the increase tax revenue. If the number shows that whatever increase in revenue is due to the increase in tax then no growth has happened.

Get my drift?

Man there is a lot of hateful people on this. You would assume people would come on here to offer solutions for their community. All I see is a lot of insulting. This is not the People of Sallisaw that I grew up with.

FYI just visit sequoyah county times website and read 18 incidents (more could be pending)alleged against City Police Chief, Shaloa Edwards. That is one example of many which reflects how low of standards are accepted in society in general and this city in particular.

Yes change in Sallisaw and our country.
not really.

You can't go by tax receipts because we're are right on the interstate and a lot of people stop here every day. More and more people travel every year. That is not growth so it can't be counted.

Do you believe everything you read in the newspaper? Some of it may be correct however I'm sure some of it is made up to make our so called mayor and city administrator look good.
not really.

The paper works with the city and county they are very bias and only give one side of the story in this case the side that makes the city look good.

With all the apparent infighting going on there, why would anyone ever dream of moving to Sallisaw? And why the constant mention of the same few people? As far as I've heard from friends of mine who live in the area, they don't even know who the people being talked about are! Sounds like you're a town of 1500! Everybody knows everybody else's business. Shame on all of you.
not really.

Growth here is hard because business owners fight it like Marvin's and the lumber yard have for years I would beat wal mart pads the pockets too to help them keep others out. We have illegal monopoly problems all over town. Like with our gas.
curious

Nope. There no exact to the penny way to figure from tax receipts but it will give you an accurate estimate of growth over a period of time. Chamber of Commerce is quoting tax revenue receipts as the same as actual growth. We had a tax increase which will show with an increase of revenue. I'm interested to see the difference between receipts prior tax increase,then after increase tax receipts through Dec.2012. You can get a good estimate of growth or lack thereof.

I don't see how when you have thousands a day coming off the interstate. A lot of our tax money is from them people Most people shop in ft smith or Muskogee for stuff. More stores and its cheaper.
