Posted: Updated:

San Agustin says it would be useful to have a system in place much like how the Guam Power Authority is managing its power plants.  The board chair says if research shows it could be feasible, he believes doe should go that route saying, "With the turnovers going on, we need to get some stability in the business office so when we get stability, we'll start getting better numbers or complete and accurate numbers. And then the system will fix itself. It just takes time. It's not going to happen overnight."
