Guam - The Department of Administration is just finally posting job openings for four new maintenance operation positions with the Guam Veterans Affairs Office. These four positions will be responsible for overall maintenance and upkeep of Veterans Cemetery as current conditions have been continuously cited as substandard.

Fred Gofigan is the administrator for the Guam Veterans Affairs Office, and told KUAM News, "Identifying the responsibilities of the position, and then from there is a period where you publicize the positions and then you set the motion for hiring."

A 2009 triennial review completed by the National Cemetery Administration, which is based in Washington, DC, cited weed infested grass encroaching on grave sites, drainage issues and white paint splattered on sidewalks as areas of concern. Gofigan says it will be about thirty to forty five days before personnel are hired for these positions.
