Steel mill in Scioto County holds promise of 500 new jobs
(WOUB) - If the State Controlling Board goes along, New Steel International will get four million dollars for a steel mill in Scioto County.

The Board meets today.

The State Development Department is requesting approval of the funds.

Two million is for "acquisition of machinery and equipment and on-site infrastructure."

The other two million is for "public roadwork improvements."

The steel mill is planned for a site at Franklin Furnace...and holds the promise of at least 500 new jobs.

The State Controlling Board also will consider a Development Department request to release 575-thousand dollars to the Belmont County Port Authority.

It's planning road improvements "in support of the new Eastern Ohio Regional Industrial Park in Warren Township."
