FedMgmt team seeks 60-day payment delay

Guam - In hopes to give the Government of Guam some breathing room, the federal management team will ask District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall for a 60-day delay in a payment schedule for the amended permanent injunction. Dr. James Kiffer says the team met with Governor Eddie Calvo on Wednesday discussing the government's current financial situation.

The team will have a teleconference with Judge Marshall next Wednesday to pitch the idea, saying, "So the money that was to be placed towards the plan on February 1 would actually go back 60 days, so it gives a little bit of breathing room for the government and give them a chance to get organized that they're trying to do."

The team is also seeking the judge's approval in obtaining access to some of the $4 million the Government of Guam has already put aside to utilize for hiring and training.  Kiffer says that amount will be adequate for the next 60 days.  Meanwhile, a request for proposal will be issued next month for a trustee to help manage the court-ordered payments.
