The Chronicle Journal recently reported that efforts by town officials to help Marathon Pulp overcome its latest financial trouble will be limited to lobbying on the importance of the forestry industry to the Northern economy, the publication reported Mayor Dave Bell as saying. Bell called to attention the possibility of granting the mill permission to put off paying its property taxes for an indefinite period of time in order to alleviate part of the financial burden its facing. In response the Ministry of Municipal Affairs said that such offers are rare, however, the town of Marathon did grant the mill such a request in the early 1990’s when it was facing similar problems.
