Guam - Things are looking positive for the Port Authority of Guam. Board Chairman Monte Mesa says that the millions of dollars the agency is seeking for port upgrades are expected soon. Mesa says they received several updates during Thursday night's board meeting, adding that a $50,000,000 grant expected from the Department of Defense is on track, and still awaits approval from Congress.
In the meantime, Mesa says management staff at the Port is currently reviewing the second application for the TIGER grant. The port needs the funding to modernize its facility as part of its efforts to prepare for the impending military buildup.
