Guam - The Department of Public Works says it is confident it will be able to answer questions raised by Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks. Brooks voiced concerns about proposed maintenance costs relative to building a new JFK High School campus.

On Monday, she told KUAM News there are questions about how the international bridge corporation came up with the numbers. Brooks added those costs are substantially high. DPW Director Andy Leon Guerrero says he remains confident those issues will be addressed, adding, "We're going to meet with her and we're going to clarify some of the questions she had concerning the contract, and we're confident that at the end of the day, we will satisfy her concerns and we should move forward with it. We'll be able to."

The meeting is scheduled for this Friday at DNA Building in Hagatna.
