ADM closing North Dakota ethanol plant in April


WALHALLA, N.D. (AP) — Archer Daniels Midland Co. is closing its ethanol plant in the northeastern North Dakota city of Walhalla in April, putting 61 people out of work.

The Illinois-based agribusiness conglomerate said it will provide severance packages and give the workers opportunities to apply for jobs at other company facilities, but Walhalla Mayor Christopher Jackson told WDAZ-TV that the loss of jobs will hurt the city of about 1,000 people.
