Gov. Dayton to discuss International Falls paper-plant job issues

Gov. Mark Dayton is headed to International Falls today for an 11:15 a.m. community meeting that will address concerns about employment cuts at the Boise paper plant there.

Last week, 265 jobs were cut when three lines were shut down at the paper mill. About 580 other workers are still employed at the plant.

There are also concerns about the future of the plant with the recently announced planned sale of the parent company to Packaging Corp. of America.

Today’s meeting with local elected officials and community members is in the third-floor courtroom at the Koochiching County Courthouse.
