“This year, for the first time, the Hot Biscuit Diner (of Ti) will set up on the mill site as a vendor serving breakfast and lunch to contractors and employees,” Wadsworth said.
“They (shutdown workers) come to work early. They don’t have time to leave for a meal.”
She said workers will also patronize local businesses and area restaurants during the outage.
“The mill’s annual outage has a significant economic impact on area businesses. As always, area motels, hotels and rentals will be filled by contractors during the outage. Area restaurants will be busy.
“The hospitality shown to visiting contractors in our community is greatly appreciated,” she said.
There may be more noise than usual coming from the mill because of all the work, Wadsworth cautioned.
“During the outage, area residents may be aware of increased noise from steam venting and vehicle and equipment (backup) alarms. We will do everything on our part to minimize noise.”
