Micron Technology Inc.'s board of directors will hold its monthly meeting Monday, Jan. 27, at its partially completed Lehi manufacturing plant.
But don't break out the marching band.Company officials said there is no change in the project's status.
"It's not any indication that our plans have changed," said Julie Nash, company spokeswoman. "Our plans are still on hold for the most part, and any change is dependent on the market."
Nash said none of the seven board members has seen the Lehi facility.
"This just gives them the opportunity to tour the facility," she said, adding that the board will occasionally hold its monthly meetings in Lehi from now on.
Sixty to 70 workers continue to work on the $2.6 billion plant. The exterior of the structure is finished, but the the interior has not been completed, and the plant contains no equipment.
And while Micron is hiring about 1,000 people in Boise, that isn't a good omen for Lehi, either. The company is adding 700 employees to the staff of Micron Electronics, which makes computers, and 300 people at Micron Technology.
Nash said the additional employees at Micron Technology are needed to process the greater volume of chips now produced at the Boise plant.
