HOLBROOK, AZ, Feb. 12, 2013 (Local News) -The Snowflake Power Plant is the latest victim of the Catalyst Paper Mill closure.

Snowflake Power, which runs a biomass power boiler on the site of the old Catalyst Paper Mill outside of Snowflake, is shutting down in middle to late March, according to Heath Hildebrand, vice president of opera-tions for the power company.

"It all leads back to the Catalyst Paper Mill shutting down," said Hildebrand. "We have been unable to reach a long-term agreement on the equipment and services we need to continue running from the Hackman-Brophy group that bought the paper mill."
