Queens County Lumber Mill Closes

A Queens County sawmill has ceased operations! L and S Lumber in Caledonia was a bustling business until the Bowater-Mercey paper mill in Brooklyn closed almost two years ago. Region of Queens Mayor Christopher Clarke says its sad to see yet another Bowater casualty.

Formerly known as the Douglas sawmill, L and S employed a couple of dozen people at its peak of operations. The workforce was down though to less than a dozen when it closed a few days ago.
