DPW awaits AG's input on Younex's permit

by Janjeera Hail

Guam - The Department of Public Works hasn't revoked Younex's July 12 building permit yet.  DPW Director Andy Leon Guerrero says his agency is waiting on the Attorney General's Office to approve the wording of a letter to the company. 

He expects that could be done as soon as Monday.

The federal government is requesting another status hearing in the U.S. District Court with the Guam Waterworks Authority. They argue DPW illegally issued a building permit to Younex without approval from GWA. Younex is proposing to build workforce housing in the Harmon Annex area, which could potentially affect the delivery of water and waste water services in the area.

Younex attorney Ike Aguigui says he hopes DPW adheres to Guam law that he says requires DPW must first submit written notice of the proposed revocation.
