WEST CARROLLTON (AP) A 119-year-old former paper mill in southwestern Ohio is set to be demolished.

The Dayton Daily News reports the demolition of the 40,000-sq. ft. (3,716 sq m) building that once housed Ahlstrom West Carrollton LLC will be paid for by the company, saving the city of West Carrollton hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Officials said Ahlstrom will take care of any environmental concerns at the 5-acre site within the next three months. A specific time for the demolition has not yet been set.

West Carrollton purchased 16 acres adjacent to the Ahlstrom site and is in the process of rehabilitating the land. The city’s cost to purchase and clean up the site has cost more than $1 million.

Ahlstrom officials declined to disclose the cost of their clean-up.
