    A Utah-based mineral processing and distribution company has expressed an interest in leasing two warehouses at the Port of Pensacola.

    The port is currently operating at a loss, but the prospective new tenant would put the port back into the black, according to local officials.

    However, the company’s inquiry comes at a time when the city is reassessing whether or not it wants to remain in the port business, making the decision whether to take on a new tenant as much a philosophical one as a financial one.

    On July 19, the Pensacola City Council will vote whether to allow the mayor’s office to enter negotiations to lease port warehouses 9 and 10 to Incoa Performance Minerals LLC for use as material storage facilities.
