LIMESTONE, Maine (AP) - Maine Military Authority in Limestone plans to cut 140 jobs this fall because of a decrease in demand for its service.
The a quasi-state agency that refurbishes military vehicles at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limeston says the layoffs will start in October and cited the reduction in troops and equipment in Iraq and Afghanistan as the reason.
The business has about 210 workers.
CEO Tim Corbett says the business will expand into refurbishing transit buses to minimize the number of layoffs.
