City Expected To Vote On Abitibi Proposal

Leaders from the City of Lufkin will be making decisions that could affect the future of the Abitibi paper mill.

The city will consider approving a tax incentive package similar to the one Angelina County commissioners approved earlier this week. The city is also being asked to allow Abitibi to make payments in lieu of taxes as long as the city doesn't annex them.

City officials called a special meeting to discuss those issues.
