Guam - The Chamorro Land Trust Commission intends to make due with a $714,000 budget next fiscal year, but the agency is hoping they can recruit much-needed staff.  During a budget hearing today, acting administrator Jesse Garcia told lawmakers he needs three land agents, an engineering aide and a computer programmer.

"In order for us to fulfill our mandates we need to address some serious concerns with personnel issues," he announced.  Garcia also said they would like to hire qualified staff with the proper training to get the trust running efficiently.

Meanwhile, CLTC oversight chair Senator Ben Pangelinan intends to meet with the agency's staff after the budget hearings, to finalize the Commission's rules and regulations in the next 30-60 days.
