Millinocket Paper Mill Auctions Items to Pay Taxes 

An auction on Thursday at the Great Northern Paper Mill in Millinocket seemed to signal an official end to the mill’s paper-making days.

Parts of the number 11 paper machine were bought separately, along with other mill equipment.

The company managing the mill, Cate Street Capital, agreed to pay the town more than two-million dollars in property taxes after the surplus sale to cover debt.

A Cate Street spokesperson said last month the company plans to turn the old mill into a wood pellet plant.
