PORT ANGELES, WA, Nov. 20, 2019 (Peninsula Daily News ) -McKinley Paper Co. is targeting mid-January for beginning production at its 99-year-old Ediz Hook plant with about 100 workers after nearly three years of industrial dormancy at the site and lost revenue for the city of Port Angeles.

If that time line holds, city government can expect once again to receive about $330,000 annually in utility and electricity fees — although city officials are not including the revenue in the proposed 2020 budget the City Council will discuss tonight at 6 p.m. at city hall.

General Manager Edward Bortz said Monday there is some doubt McKinley can be definite about a specific date in anticipating the plant will open in about eight weeks, but is confident it will happen around that time.
