New Milford Mayor tours Kimberly-Clark plant

New Milford Mayor Pete Bass took at tour of the Kimberly-Clark plant on Friday.  He wanted to reassure people that the mill is not closing, despite the company cutting more than 10-percent of its workforce in an effort to lower costs.  The maker of Huggies and Kleenex products announced the plan in January.  The company also will be closing or selling 10 manufacturing plants, while expanding production elsewhere.  Kimberly-Clark employs 350 full-time workers and is one of New Milford's largest taxpayers.  After his tour, Bass noted that last year alone Kimberly-Clark donated $110,000 to the United Way, helps with Engineering week at the high school and holds Thanksgiving food drives among other events to benefit the community.
