JFK negotiations could be finalized by July

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Finally there is some good news for the JFK Islanders as the word out of the Department of Public Works is that the dirt could be turned for the new campus next month.  A meeting was held today between the agency, GEDA and International Bridge Corporation. According to DOE director Andy Leon Guerrero, the estimated cost of the new high school is more than $65 million, with negotiations expected to be completed by the end of next week.

Leon Guerrero adds they are hoping to announce the award of the contract by the second week of July so the groundbreaking can immediately take place. The construction of the new Upper Tumon campus was delayed for the past year as several appeals were filed with the Guam Office of Public Accountability and the courts regarding the contract.
