LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – Lowndes County is officially on board for a multi-billion dollar aluminum mill project.
Supervisors passed a resolution authorizing the execution of an agreement with Steel Dynamics and its affiliate Aluminum Dynamics to bring a $2 billion aluminum mill to Lowndes County.
In a Special Session last week, state lawmakers approved an $81 million upfront investment along with $245 million in bonds to bring the project to Mississippi.
Today’s resolution formalizes Lowndes County’s obligations under the agreement.
The mill is expected to bring around 1,000 new, full-time jobs to the area.
