GFD owes over $6K to trash vendors

Guam - The trash keeps piling up at the Guam Fire Department, as the bins at several fire stations have been overflowing for the past few days. GFD owes the vendor about $6,600 for trash services. GFD Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas says the department has sent a request for the funds to the Department of Administration, saying it is both an OSHA and EPA concern.

However, Public Safety Committee Oversight Chairman Senator Adolpho Palacios says it's a processing issue and not a funding issue.  "I would say that this trash collection is already given out on a contractual basis, that automatically the invoice will be going out directly to DOA, the DOA is paying agent, the problem would have to be there, there's no other place," he told KUAM News.

Senator Palacios added that he met with the acting fire chief today and he will be meeting with DOA to find out when the funds can be released.
