A shuttered paper plant in Brainerd might have a potential buyer, but the Brainerd Dispatch reports that city officials are not yet naming the potential new owner

About 130 workers lost their jobs in April after the mill's closure by Wausau Paper, which cited its decision to end involvement in the print business and economic weakness as factors in the shutown. A task force made up of Brainerd city and business leaders formed to seek potential buyers.

Meanwhile, the Associated Press reported that the city has placed a bid for an undisclosed amount on the plant's hydroelectric dam. It will be sold separately from the facility itself. The price will become public when the deal is finalized.
