Mayor: Wynne employment numbers almost back to normal

 

WYNNE, AR (KAIT) - Some good news is came out of Wynne Friday as Mayor Bob Stacy said employment seems to be picking up for his city.

You may remember the large fire that destroyed the plastics division of Mueller Copper Tube Products in 2011.

Stacey says about two thirds of the employees displaced by the fire have been rehired and moved around and that the plant has also leased some other city owned buildings.

Stacey believes the employment numbers are close to where they were before the fire.
