One of north central Idaho's largest employers, Clearwater Paper, is seeking a major tax exemption to improve less than an acre of the facility's 470-acre Lewiston complex. And that's why Nez Perce County commissioners toured the plant July 28 as they mull a 75-percent, five-year new property tax exemption, with a price tag of over $4 million.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that commissioners will meet next week to mull the tax exemption for a new chip digester, which would covert raw wood chips into pulp, to ultimately become tissue products such as toilet paper or paperboard. The proposed project also includes a 1,000-ton holding tank and polysulfide generator (which would convert sodium sulfide to be mixed with the wood chips, resulting in pulp).

Clearwater Paper, a spin-off from the Potlatch Corporation, manufactures paper towels, napkins, bathroom tissue, facial tissue,and paperboard used for folding cartons, liquid packaging, paper plates and cups.
