USDA funding could be used for landfill

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Once the Government of Guam secures USDA funding, they'll have to ask District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood to allow the money to become the funding mechanism for the construction of the Layon landfill and seek the return of bond proceeds that were set aside for the ongoing projects as required by the court. 

Governor's Deputy Chief of Staff Shawn Gumataotao says once that's approved, the Camacho Administration and lawmakers will have to decide how to utilize the bond proceeds. He anticipates that $20 million will go toward Mental Health's permanent injunction, another $20 million for the Guam Museum, and other revenue generating projects. 

Gumataotao says Adelup does not intend to use any of that money to construct a new JFK High School.
