GBB's plans revamp payments approved

Guam - District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood has issued an order in the Ordot consent decree case.  She's approved the federal receiver's plans to restructure its customer payment process, which means that instead of processing payments with the Treasurer of Guam, federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton instead would like it to be contracted with a local bank to receive all payments on behalf of the Solid Waste Management Division and deposit the funds directly to the division's bank account.

The bank would also be designated to receive mailed customer payments and would transmit information about the payments to the division and the Department of Administration on a daily basis.  Gatewood also approved GBB's delinquent customer service policy. 

Here's how that works: if you are 30 days late, you'll get a reminder, 60 days will be considered delinquent and customers will receive a  notice that if its not paid within another 30 days service will be discontinued.  

The chief judge also ordered DPW and other GovGuam agencies to expedite approval of all necessary contracts for construction or other services needed to complete consent decree related projects. The receiver is ordered to continue working with the GovGuam and the military to advance an agreement on the military's participation as a customer.

The next hearing has been scheduled for October 27.
