After a long wait, Los Alamos residents might finally get some answers about the status of the Trinity Site project.

A special county council session will be held at 7 p.m. today in council chambers, during which time a presentation and discussion on the Trinity Site status will be held.

Residents are invited to attend the meeting and voice their opinions and concerns during the public comment portion of the meeting. Assistant County Administrator Anthony Mortillaro will give the presentation.

In an interview a couple of weeks ago, Wade Williams, a partner in The Boyer Company said unless the company can come up with a project model in the next 30 days that works in this economic downturn, the deal’s done. He also said Boyer is pushing hard and should know for sure if it’s going to go or not go soon.

However, at the July 14 council meeting, Councilor Vincent Chiravalle said he was very concerned about what he deemed as rumors regarding a 30-day timeline for the project and as a result, is receiving a lot of correspondence from concerned residents.

According to county documents, it is anticipated this special session will only cover the information about the history and current status of the project and that a decision as to the county’s ongoing relationship with The Boyer Company in respect to the Trinity Redevelopment Project will be made at a future meeting in the next few weeks after the community has been allowed to provide input to the council on the path forward.

The future meeting will be widely advertised well in advance, but the date of the meeting has not yet been finalized.
