Lowville, NY - Plans the Lewis County Industrial Development Agency have for purchasing the former Climax building appear to finally be moving forward.

Because of a large number of liens that remained on the property, Lewis County IDA could not purchase the property this past April. According to an article from the Lowville Journal and Republican, all liens were eliminated last Wednesday at Carthage Specialty Paperboard's bankruptcy proceedings. The IDA board met last Thursday and voted unanimously to approve the purchase of the Climax building, just outside the village of Lowville, for $800,000. After the plant abruptly shut down in April 2016, putting 158 employees out of work, the building has being used solely for warehousing, But Erik Virkler, executive director of the IDA, believes that the possibilities for the building are endless.
