EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The Everett City Council decided the former Kimberly-Clark mill on the waterfront should be zoned for water-dependent industry.

The only no vote Wednesday came from a councilwoman who said an office park or light industry would create more jobs with better pay.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/VLEpYy) Kimberly-Clark is talking to several prospective buyers for the 66-acre site. The mill closed last year, eliminating 700 jobs.
