State Legislators Call on Esmark to Restart Yorkville Mill

Posted: Updated:

Two lawmakers from eastern Ohio have joined forces to send a letter and message to the owner of the former RG Steel plant in Yorkville.

Ohio State Senator Lou Gentile and State Representative Jack Cera are asking James Bouchard of Esmark to fulfill the companies public commitment to restart the Yorkville mill or allow other interested parties to restart it.

In a letter to Bouchard, both men remind Esmark of how vital this steel plant is to the area. 

WTRF has sent an email to Esmark spokesman Bill Keegan for a response on the letter. No response has been received as of Friday.
