Layoffs at Hawthorne Army Depot
HAWTHORNE, Nev. (AP) – Mineral County officials say 91 people have been laid off from the Hawthorne Army Depot and another 22 have taken voluntary early retirement.
Shelley Hartmann is executive director of the Mineral County Economic Development Authority. She says more layoffs are planned at the government-owned, contractor-operated military industrial installation.
The Day & Zimmerman Hawthorne Corp. has operated and maintained the facility since January 2000.
County officials say the layoffs will be hard on the community 130 miles southeast of Reno. About 4,500 people live in Hawthorne.
