MERRILLVILLE | The Town Council on Tuesday unanimously granted a variance for a proposed Aunt Millie's Bakeries distribution facility and retail sales business near 69th Avenue and Mississippi Street.
The $2 million project could begin in late spring or early summer, according to Aunt Millie's.
About 30 employees from the Aunt Millie's distribution center in Griffith would be transferred to the new site. An additional 25 to 30 employees would be hired.
Aunt Millie's also has received preliminary subdivision approval from the Plan Commission.
