A family-operated sawmill will open in Westborough.
The Midnight Wind Realty Trust Sawmill at 9 Old Flanders Road will mainly serve “corporate customers with cut-to-order wood materials for building equipment skids and wood for other industrial and commercial uses,” according to the business’ Sept. 10 site plan review application.
The sawmill will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. six days per week, Gary Garner told the board of selectmen during a public hearing on the application, which the board approved, Tuesday night.
Garner and Lawrence Gomes met with selectmen during the hearing. Gomes and Catherine Gomes, as Midnight Wind Realty Trust, own the .94 acre site, according to the application.
Garner said he has cut lumber for 40 years.
“One of my daughters wants to get into it,” he said.
