Laramie, Wy – An agreement has been completed to lease
and eventually sell the closed 44 Lumber sawmill in Encampment.
Under the proposed deal, the mill would be taken over by Soderberg family, which has been in the timber business for more than 20 years.
Family spokeswoman Lynn Soderberg says they hope to have the mill running by July first.
The family has asked the town of Encampment for a 100-thousand dollar loan from its economic development council fund to assist in financing the transaction.
