The Old Town Paper Mill is once again up and running. "That mill is not just good for Old Town -- it's very good for Old Town, as far as its tax base, but the jobs, the very good paying jobs with benefits," former Old Town City Councilor Jack Cashman said. "It's good for the whole area, not just Old Town." There will be 130 of those good paying jobs at the Old Town Mill. The mill was bought by Hong Kong-based Nine Dragons Paper last year. ND Paper also owns the mill in Rumford. This has government leaders convinced the company is committed to Maine.
