Old International Paper Equipment Up for Sale
NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) – Some of the last infrastructure left over from International Paper's days of operations will soon be up for bid.
The Adams County Board of Supervisors authorized this week for County Administrator Joe Murray to declare some of the old IP equipment to be excess equipment and advertise it for sale.
Murray tells The Natchez Democrat the county was recently approached by parties interested in buying the large crane that was at one time used to stack logs in the lumber yard and two turbine generators from the paper mill's power plant.
Because the IP equipment is county property, once it is advertised for sale, those who want to purchase it will have to submit a bid. The date to submit bids has yet to be determined.
