Guam - Collaboration between the Mayor's Council of Guam, Balli Steel, the Guam Environmental Protection Agency, the General Services Agency and oversight chair on the Mayor's Council Senator Tina Muna Barnes has resulted in the full operation of the Abandoned Vehicle Program. Constant meetings have resulted in the adoption of standard operating procedures for launching the cleanups and processes for payments for vendors.

A press conference was held today at the Barrigada Mayor's Office where Senator Barnes encouraged the community to take advantage of the program. "As we clean our environment, our community, our island, as we protect our island, we now know that there are procedures in place to make sure that as we move along in the other villages, we had several villages rove through the initiation stage and we there were a couple of glitches to how we would say tweaked out, but today we have this in place because of all the hard work of our stakeholders," she announced.

For more information on the program and how you can take advantage of these services, you can contact your village mayor's office.
