INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Boise Inc. says it plans to lay off 265 paper workers at its plant in International Falls.

The Mesabi Daily News says the company will idle two production lines and permanently terminate the workers by Oct. 1.

Boise International Falls spokeswoman Lori Lyman says the company remains committed to the community. Five-hundred-80 employees will remain at the plant after the layoffs.

How many layoffs will be salaried and how many will involve hourly jobs is yet to be determined.
