CALHOUN, TN, Aug. 20, 2014 (Local News) -McMinn County Mayor John Gentry says he essentially kept two budgets amid the last business downturn in case there was a problem with the county's biggest taxpayer, known for years as the Bowater plant.

But on Tuesday, Gentry said a new $105 million expansion to the pulp and paper mill will provide stability to the plant -- and to the county's finances.

"It's a shot in the arm," said Gentry at the groundbreaking of the project Tuesday. "I see the company pivoting with the times to grow."
