“We do not make money sitting still,” Morton said on Tuesday. “We make money taking buildings down. It’s not economically feasible. If that mill was that important it should have been saved … years ago.”
“The committee has asked Morton to meet with them as they are trying to come to an agreement,” Gist said. “From day one, the (deconstruction) permit is still under review. A lot of that will come from the committee that has been formed to preserve the Bemis mill and their ongoing efforts to contact several investors.”
