NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — A lumber company could soon start a wood chipping operation and log storage facility in southwest Mississippi.

The development will be on land near a shuttered International Paper mill, which is now owned by Adams County.

The Natchez Democrat reports that Adams County supervisors Monday set a five-year lease for the mill with Netco Express, LLC, a company based in nearby Wilkinson County. The contract is being reviewed by attorneys.

Netco will rent 12 acres of the old International Paper property for at least $14,400 a year, provided the company employs at least 20 full-time employees within its first six months of operation.
