VICKSBURG, Mich.  -A blighted paper mill in Vicksburg was awarded a grant and loan from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) for a redevelopment project.

Newschannel 3's Franque Thompson reported on how the loan and grant totaling $1.35 million dollars is expected to help bring new life and opportunities to a Vicksburg paper mill sitting on contaminated land.
The old, rundown Vicksburg paper mill was built in 1905 and was once a vital part of the village, but it hasn't been used since 2001 and part of it burned down in 2012.

Vicksburg Village Manager Jim Mallery said, “A facility that has contributed to their livelihood, it's helped finance kids through college, its helped have impact on our community.”
