Google investing $300M to build Iowa data center
(AP) -- Google Inc. says it will invest $300 million to build another data center in western Iowa.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company announced at a news conference Tuesday that the center will bring about 50 new jobs to Council Bluffs, a city across the Missouri River from Omaha, Neb.
Officials say construction will begin immediately. Google's existing $600 million data center in Council Bluffs opened in 2009.
The Iowa Economic Development Authority board approved more than $9 million in tax credits last week to help Google select the Iowa site.
