Monroe County Could See 200 New Jobs

MONROE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-A Monroe County furniture maker may expand, adding as many as 200 jobs. County supervisors discussed the possible project and incentives in executive session Friday (9-21). County Economic Development Coordinator Tony Green said the unnamed company has not yet made a decision but could do so by the end of the year. If it does opt for Monroe County, the jobs could come within a year. Governor Phil Bryant is expected to take part in the announcement if the deal is closed.
