OSHKOSH - The Oshkosh Plan Commission approved a plan Tuesday night that is meant to help Bemis Company expand operations in the city.

Bemis is asking the city for $2 million over ten years. The money would be in the form of tax reimbursements, as part of a TIF district.

The expansion would also mean doubling the 160-member workforce at the company's plant on N. Main St. over the next three years.

The plan still needs approval from the city council.

Bemis told FOX 11 earlier this month, the company would be ready to break ground almost immediately after the city signs off.
