Guam - The Chamorro Land Trust Commission issued seven more notices of violation today.  A number of violations were uncovered on agricultural leases during recent inspections including noncompliance with labor laws, unauthorized livestock operations and unauthorized septic systems that may be affecting Guam's waters supply.

CLTC Administrator Jess Garcia says he signed-off on 14 NOVs yesterday and more are expected to be issued in the coming days.  "It's not to terminate anybody, it's to help them, let them know what they're in violation of," he explained.  "They're going to receive some assistance from Department of Agriculture and the University of Guam to come into compliance with their lease."

Workshops are being planned by UOG to help leaseholders develop farm plans, one of the first steps outlined in the NOVs.
