An anticipated one day shutdown turns into a week at L&M Lumber.

According to L&M Lumber manager Allan Fitzpatrick the company has hit a few snags regarding the renewal of their insurance policy in light of the “unfortuante events” that had happened in Burns Lake and Prince George.

“It’s a lengthy process and our brokers are working with companies in London with the finailization of renewal,” said Fitzpatrick.

LUA has been insuring the forrest industryies since 1905 had given the industries 30 to 90 days to renew their insurance.

“The process had taken longer than expected,” said Fitzpatrick. “We believe we have met a resolution. We are taking the time to catch up and clean up without any hot work onsite.”

Fitzpatrick is hopeful that L&M Lumber will be back up and running by Aug. 6.
