HOQUIAM MAYOR WANTS FEASIBILITY STUDY ON MILL

May 27, 2011

 

As the news of the closure of the Grays Harbor Paper facility sinks in, employees and support business owners are beginning the search for new jobs and opportunities.  As to the future of the facility itself, Hoquiam Mayor Jack Durney says he is hopeful that a feasibility study can be put together to examine the mill and announce whether or not it is a viable facility with a desired product. Durney says the city may turn to Governor Chris Gregoire who orchestrated a similar study in Cosmopolis that led to the mill being reopened by the Gores Group under the name Cosmo Specialty Fibers. Durney says the city and region’s relationship with Panaltech’s Roy Nott and investor Richard Bassett, both of whom helped keep the Cosmopolis mill in front of potential buyers can only help Hoquiam in this case.
