G-P investing $2M in Brewton, AL, linerboard machine

April 19, 2010 - 12:23

BREWTON, AL, April 19, 2010 (Upper Michigans Source ) -Georgia-Pacific's plan to increase assets at the Brewton mill by $2.4 million moved one step forward when Brewton City Councilmen approved a requested tax abatement.

Jason Daniel, director of public affairs at GP, said the abatement wouldn't affect taxes paid into the county for education.

"This abatement does not negatively affect the school taxes paid by GP," Daniel said. "Actually, because of the additional assets, GP will pay an additional $87,000 in school taxes over the 10-year period of the abatement."

Broox Garrett, chairman of the Brewton Industrial Development Board, told the council the assets planned will help secure current jobs at the mill.
