Guam - Sinajana Vice-Mayor Robert Hoffman says the Islandwide Abandoned Vehicle and White Goods Cleanup Project could be given the green light again, possibly as early as next week. Hoffman says he has reassurances from Adelup that the project will move forward and says that he is working closely with the governor's deputy chief of staff Shawn Gumatatao, who has emphasized to him that this project is a priority for the Camacho Administration.

Hoffman adds he expects that Bali Steel Guam will satisfy its notice of violation by next week.  "I'm crossing my fingers and I've been updated by the Governor's Office regularly, and hopefully when the governor actually sits down and says, 'This is what we want done', we've addressed this.  So that's what we asked - is this really it? Are we done? Can we start now? We'll see what the governor says and what EPA says."

Bali Steel Guam Spokesperson David Bell has confirmed that over 500 tons of white goods will be shipped out in partnership with Global Recycling moving forward, and the company will be filing an update with all activities early next week. Bell told KUAM News, "The support from the mayors and the community has been extraordinary, and we are going to keep pushing ahead."
