MISSOULA, MT, May 28, 2013 (Local News) -The owners of the former Smurfit-Stone Container Corp. paper mill site in Frenchtown say designating the area a Superfund site would hinder bringing back jobs.

Ray Stillwell, manager for M2Green Redevelopment LLC, said such a designation would slow development, and he would rather state officials oversee the cleanup.

"If you look at any Superfund site, the bureaucracy imposed is going to delay any job creation or economic activity there," Stillwell told the Missoulian. "It's not because they're not good people, but they have a system that takes months and years, compared to equally professional and qualified people at the state level."
