GRRP doesn't show for court hearing

Guam - The company that requested the Guam Environmental Protection Agency hold a hearing on their objections to a solid waste landfill permit being given for the Layon landfill was a no-show during today's meeting. Guam Resource Recovery Partners has taken the matter up in the Superior Court, asking a judge to nullify the permit that Guam EPA granted for the island's new landfill at Layon.

Deputy Attorney General Patrick Mason acted as moderator for the brief hearing, and said, "Since the purpose of the meeting was to let GRRP make comments they requested, and asked for in their writ of mandate.  And there's no one here to make those comments, we'll go ahead and close the hearing."

Part of GRRP's argument for having the Layon landfill permit nullified is because they claim the Guam EPA never held a hearing allowing them or the public to voice their opposition before the permit was granted.
