The Boyer Company was asked point blank in a telephone call to its Salt Lake City Headquarters Thursday if it’s pulling out of the Trinity Site Project.
“The world’s not that simple as a yes or no answer,” said Wade Williams, a partner in the company.
Williams set the record straight saying The Boyer Company is working very hard to stay in the game but if they can’t come up with a project model in the next 30 days that works in this economic downturn – the deal’s done for.
“The hitch is finding a model that really works for the small retailer,” Williams said. “Also, the problem in Los Alamos is that rents are higher, construction costs are higher and labor costs are higher. I think we’ll know for sure if it’s go or not go in 30 days – but we’re pushing hard.”
County Council Chair Michael Wheeler said that negotiations with Boyer have been going on for quite some time without any result.
“So that’s a question, really,” he said, “beyond that, everything else has been negotiations, so I can’t comment on that.”
Wheeler also said he could neither confirm nor deny the 30-day timeline.
