ST Paper will seek up to $1.5 million in state job-creation funds to breathe new life into Verso Corp.'s Duluth paper mill, with the full support of the Duluth City Council.

By a unanimous vote Monday night, councilors adopted a resolution backing a request to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development on behalf of ST Paper, which has been engaged in negotiations to purchase and reopen the mill for the past couple months.
