Monroe County company forced to make job cuts

All 170 employees at the Alabama River Newsprint Mill in Perdue Hill, west of Monroeville will be laid off indefinitely.

The company blames decreasing newsprint demand and high power costs. Alabama River will reconsider its status in 60 to 90 days. The company lost $800 million through the first nine months of this year.

The plant opened in 1990.
