Guam - An informational meeting will be held tomorrow afternoon for Tiyan landowners affected by Bill 278.  That bill is up for public hearing next Thursday.

It seeks to compensate Tiyan landowners, whose property was taken for the airport expansion, with land at the old federal aviation administration at Marbo Sea Command.  Tiyan Landowners Task Force Chairman Benny Crawford says he has confidence in the bill and hopes that landowners will make it to tomorrow night's meeting.

"We're going to have an attorney there to talk about how do we get deeds if we do get the land, Tiyan trust and probates. Then we have people from the real estate department that would help us if we do get these lands with negotiations with companies or the federal government if they do want to lease these properties from the land owners or just get the actual deeds to get the land," Crawford said.

The meeting will take place at 12:30 at Christ Bible Fellowship on Airport Road.
