WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Sealed Air in Wichita Falls is looking to make improvements to retain workers, and the city could be helping out.

On Tuesday city council will consider awarding $1.25 million to the plant to help them purchase a new vision system, uninterrupted power supply, and possibly roof and parking lot improvements.

It's a deal Mayor Stephen Santellana said is a no-brainer.

"The two ways you can make this place grow is to either bring in more jobs or to retain the jobs you have," Mayor Santellana said. "In the past, I don't know if we did a fantastic job of that. Some of that stuff is outside of our abilities to keep people here. But the people that are here we want to make sure that we can help them out in any way possible."

Mayor Santellana said Sealed Air has to compete within its own company to land more workers and jobs. That's why it's so important to help.

If the improvements are made it could lead to even more Sealed Air jobs being added to the north Texas location in the future.
