Auto parts manufacturer Tower International may be adding new jobs at its Meridian plant, according to County Administrator Joe McCraney.

    McCraney said the county board of supervisors agreed at their Tuesday meeting to accept a grant from the Mississippi Development Authority that will be used to expand the local Tower manufacturing plant, adding an estimated 12 jobs.

    The grant, for up to $175,000, is a non-matching grant and will not present a cost to the county, McCraney said.

    East Mississippi Business Development Corp. President Wade Jones did not immediately respond to a phone message requesting more information.
