Statement by Supervisors Sylvia Allen and David Tenney Regarding the Closure of the Snowflake Power Plant
HOLBROOK, AZ — We would like to send our support and heartfelt sorrow to those who will be directly affected by the news that the Snowflake Power Plant will close its doors shortly. Since the announcement by Catalyst Paper last summer, there have been numerous attempts by a determined and talented collection of private individuals and public officials to save the jobs that are tied to the paper mill in Snowflake, but it seems that even those efforts have now been overwhelmed by the economic forces at work.
The loss of the Snowflake Power Plant for the families and communities involved is tragic, but we are committed to helping in any way we can. We feel it is our duty to help lead in the effort to keep pushing for economic opportunities in the region, and we will continue to work with members of the business community to keep the environment as favorable to new and existing business as we can.
We need new and existing industries to have every advantage possible. The vibrancy and vitality of each business is essential to our region, and we encourage our citizens to reach out and support our local economy in every way.
Supervisor Sylvia Allen | District III Supervisor David Tenney | District IV ###
