SILVERTHORNE – The Summit County Chamber of Commerce is looking to an individual business to keep the Silverthorne Information Center open.The Summit County Chamber of Commerce is struggling with declining revenues caused by reduced government and ski area contributions, a declining membership and financial losses from its reservation system.But the information center in Silverthorne will remain open only if financial help comes from managers of the Silverthorne Factory Stores. If financial help isn’t secured by the end of the month, the location is likely to close by the end of June, Summit County Chamber executive director Jack Taylor said. Taylor seemed optimistic the funds would become available.”The management (at the Factory Stores) is incredibly interested in community services,” Taylor said.Rob Goodell, manager at the Silverthorne Factory Stores, confirmed Tuesday that the company wants to help keep the information center open. Goodell said negotiations are ongoing but couldn’t say whether funds would be made available. The company already waives lease payments for the building – a small log structure in the Factory Stores parking lot.- Kim Marquis
