West Fraser is cleaning up the property of the former Houston Forest Products while they try sell it.

West Fraser Operations Manager John Vander Ende says they are meeting an entity with industrial connections to help market the site.

“In the long run, we’ll ultimately sell the property,” he said, adding that they’re waiting for “some solid proposals.”

Vander Ende says they plan to leave standing the office, mobile shop, storage shed and weigh scale, as they have “general use potential for lots of people.”

He said they are levelling the planer and sawmill and salvaging the steel.

Crews from Ontario and Alberta are dismantling some of the buildings.

Vander Ende says they’re in no rush to finish cleaning up the site, as they want to ensure proper removal of the equipment sold in the auction last August.

“It will be when it will be,” he said.
