Cedar Springs -- Reorganization is underway at a South Georgia paper mill that will cost dozens of people their jobs.  

The Georgia Pacific Containerboard plant in Cedar Springs was sold to Koch in December. Now, jobs are being cut. All of the 135 salaried employees were offered voluntary severance packages in June, and 44 of them accepted.

Last Friday, the plant began negotiating severance packages for hourly workers. Plant management won't say how many jobs will be cut.

The plant, which sits on the Chattahoochee River in Early County, employs 684 people. Plant managers say the paper industry as a whole is slumping and the cutbacks are necessary for the plant to stay in business.
