New Jobs Possibly Coming To East Texas

New jobs in East Texas could be coming soon, if the Smith County Commissioners agree to give a local corporation a break on its taxes. Astro Machine Works met with the commissioners this morning. The company says if given a five year, 100% tax abatement, it will provide at least 125 jobs for the area.

Astro makes machinery used in the oil, water, and defense industries. No word on when the commissioners will decide on the tax abatement.
