UOG makes repairs to facility

by Nick Delgado

Guam - While the Department of Education is kicking-off its efforts to make repairs at the schools, the University of Guam is also working on its five-year plan to repair its facility. UOG spokesperson Cathleen Moore-Linn says Sodexo was hired in March 2009 to survey their facilities. She says the report showed a critical need for roof repairs, air conditioning units, as well as renovations to classrooms and the Marine Lab.

She says the $17 million in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funding will help them move a lot of the projects that have been sitting idle

"We've got a long list of projects and so what we are trying to do is take the ARRA funding and put it to the best use according to priority and that's from university data," she said.

She adds efforts are also underway to strengthen the structure at the business administration building, as several structural integrity problems were found by Macario.
