Sonora S.P.I. Mill Closure Delayed

Sonora, CA — The closure of the Sierra Pacific Industries Mill in Standard has been delayed for close to a month.

The mill is now expected to close August 14 rather than July 17. 146 mill workers are scheduled to lose their jobs.

According to Community Relations Manager Mark Luster in Lincoln, CA, “The closure is being delayed because we still have some logs in the log deck that have to be runout and it’s just going to take us a little bit longer to go through that log mix than we originally anticipated.”
