WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Microsoft is seeking some state aid for a third data center in West Des Moines.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/2aiNcDm ) that state documents released Wednesday say the technology giant will go before the Iowa Economic Development Board on Friday to seek $4.7 million in state incentives.

Microsoft must create 57 jobs with the first phase to receive state funds. Eleven of those jobs would have to pay at least $27.92 an hour.

Microsoft plans to initially invest $417.7 million in the first phase of the data center. The center will sit on the southwest side of West Des Moines, occupying land in both Madison and Warren counties.
