LIMESTONE, Maine (AP) — More work could be on its way to the Maine Military Authority in Limestone.

The Bangor Daily News says the Army is planning to send two representatives to Aroostook County to explore options for new work at the facility, which refurbishes Army National Guard vehicles.

Military Authority Executive Director Tim Corbett says the facility is seeking to line up work to make up for a decrease in the workload it usually sees from the National Guard.

About 370 workers now work at the authority.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins raised the issue with Army Undersecretary Joseph Westphal, who is also the former chancellor of the University of Maine System, before his confirmation hearing last year.

No date has been set for the visit by Army officials.
