Like a professional boxer, economic director Mike Vogel dodged and weaved questions on the progress to bring a four-year university to town Tuesday in an hour-long meeting that left most with more questions than answers. Vogel said he could not go into detail on plans to build a 6,000-student, $700 million university campus in Payson because it could jeopardize negotiations. “It will happen, I promise you that,” Vogel said.
