Lime Springs, Iowa – One Northeast Iowa business is receiving state grant money after it’s promise to create new jobs. The Iowa Economic Development Authority has approved state incentives for three businesses that have promised to hire 150 new people.
IEDA spokesperson, Jacque Matsen, says Upper Iowa Beef in northeast Iowa won tax benefits.
She says they want to dramatically increase their production.
The additional capacity will require them to hire more workers.
Twenty of the new jobs will have a wage of nearly 22 dollars-an-hour.
