Group says GHURA illegally chose bidder

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Agat Housing Partners is pursuing legal action against the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority.  The group has asked the Superior Court to issue an alternative writ of mandate as they allege GHURA violated the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program when it found Ironwood Heights II Guam as the most qualified bidder.  The program would provide more than $2,000,000 in tax credits to a qualified company for providing low-income housing.

Agat Housing Partners contends GHURA violated Guam law by accepting solicitations from a Ironwood Heights II that they allege wasn't a legal organized entity at the time they received the award.

GHURA meanwhile has filed a motion to dismiss alleging the agency acted appropriately and in accordance with local law.  The court gave Agat Housing Partners until June 21 to file an opposition to the motion to dismiss and GHURA until July 1 to respond with a hearing on July 7.
