Siouxland community spending millions on new project

Posted:

NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) -- City leaders in Norfolk, Nebraska plan to spend $3.6 million to bring a new company to town.

Last week, we told you how Texas-based Tejas Tubular planned to build a new plant in the Norfolk area.

The move would create 200 jobs.

Monday night, the city council unanimously approved spending more than $3.6 million dollars in LB-840 economic development funds for the project.

"We're maximizing the use of the remaining LB 840 funds so that we can, not only bring Tejas Tubular to town, but also have the natural gas we need to grow," said Courtney Klein, Norfolk, Nebraska's Economic Development Director.

The money will be used to build a natural gas line for the project.

Construction on the plant will start later this year, and it should be done next year.

The state is pitching in $1.4 million dollars.
