Obey Secures $4.92 Million for Flambeau Rivers Paper Mill
There's some good news for the Flambeau Rivers Mill in Park Falls.
Congressman Dave Obey announced that the facility is getting almost 5-million dollars in grant money with the passage of the federal appropriations bill.
The money will go towards making the mill energy independent.
Company leaders say eliminating natural gas and coal will save the mill millions of dollars and reduce carbon output from fossil fuels.
The money will get the company the help it needs to convert the mill.
