Guam - The Government of Guam should have $104 million in its hands to fund the construction of the Layon landfill by May.  U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Area Director Joe Diego tells KUAM News that inspectors visited the island last week to tour the landfill and address issues about compliance to ensure the public sector receive the loan/grant.

"Our mission," Diego stated, "in terms of making sure the project complies with Davis Bacon and Buy America, is two-fold: basically we're going back to what the receiver completed from when he started the project to when we approve the loan to make sure we have compliance issues addressed and then today moving forward how we're going to maintain those compliance issues."

Diego says the inspectors didn't find any "dealbreakers" and are expected to compile a report within the next few weeks making the completion of the loan/grant application a reality within the next 30 days.
