GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Green Bay Packaging says now that the Brown County Board of Supervisors have agreed to provide infrastructure improvements, the company can move forward in building a new paper mill.
The $500 million construction was voted on by the City Council earlier in the week. The result was a unanimous approval of an incentive package for the state-of-the-art mill.
Vice President of Green Bay Packaging Bryan Hollenbach says he's happy to see the board identify the value of the company.
“We are pleased to see the Brown County Board of Supervisors recognize the economic value that Northeast Wisconsin’s papermaking industry continues to bring to our local communities."
Hollenbach says it's the largest business development in Brown County history, and the first new paper mill in over 30 years.
