Perry businessman Sam Gullo wants a $300,000 loan from Wyoming County to help him buy the Champion plant.
Gullo's purchase of the plant would allow him to lease it back to Champion and keep 125 distribution and custom printing jobs there. Earlier this year, Champion moved 345 jobs at the Perry plant to other facilities in the South.
Under the proposal, the Wyoming County Industrial Development Agency would loan Gullo $300,000 of the total $850,000 purchase price. A public hearing on the proposal is set for Sept. 9 at Perry Town Hall.
