How many of the men and women who work in the mill live in GC? I can see an impact to property taxes but even closed, it will still be taxed.
My bigger fear is they will walk away and let that plant slowly rust into oblivion like the plant up route 3 did year ago. I hope there's a way the city can hold the owners feet to the fire to either dismantle the plant or keep it in decent shape.
Because of the contamination in the ground, we know it will never be of commercial or residential use.
Let's see if this new mayor has the clout to turn this disaster around. Hopefully for all of us, especially you all who are much younger tham me, he will.
