Management team seeks access to $4M

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The federal management team has filed an emergency motion with the District Court in hopes to begin using some of the $4,000,000 the government has set aside for its plan of action.  The team of Dr. James Kiffer and James Casey asked the judge to make the funds available so they can hire personnel, institute training and initiate the Personal Care Attendant/Direct Service Provider Program.

They note that a trustee has not been designated and approved by the court, and without access to the funds, care to consumers would be stalled.

Kiffer and Casey meanwhile met with Governor Eddie Calvo late this afternoon. Calvo has said he intends to ask the judge to amend the payment schedule for the $15,000,000 the government is mandated to pay this fiscal year.
