Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz is calling for an attorney general's investigation and an oversight hearing for the Department of Public Works.  After receiving concerns from various small businesses that are adversely impacted by the ongoing islandwide road construction, Guthertz sent a letter to DPW director Andy Leon Guerrero expressing her displeasure with the current non-win-win situation for businesses. 

Road Professional Maintenance general manager Michael Anderson wrote Sen. Guthertz a letter saying his auto-mechanic shop located at the Circle K/76 gas station in Barrigada has suffered a significant loss in business since the construction losing between 46%-68% in retail sales.  Anderson had also expressed concerns that the contractor awarded the bid has not had enough manpower to complete the job and closed-off more of the road than is necessary at a time for the ongoing construction at the tri-intersection. 

Guthertz intends to ask the AG to investigate the matter and ask Public Works oversight chair Senator Tom Ada to call for an oversight hearing.
