The Mississippi Development Authority will give WestRock $320,000 for building improvements and $50,000 for worker training. Local officials will grant property tax breaks worth an estimated $2.6 million.
MDA spokeswoman Tammy Craft says jobs qualify for incentives rebating some worker income taxes to the company. That requires WestRock pay at least $40,500 annually. WestRock could get $405,000 over 10 years.
