Barnes urges DPW to inspect Inarajan problems

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Senator Tina Muna Barnes and Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz are urging the Department of Public Works to address the serious threat to public safety for the people of Inarajan. The letter points out that Inarajan Elementary School is in serious disrepair and seems to structurally unsound.

The two senators add that shards of glass, jagged edges of tin and broken wooden panels are within just a few feet of a community basketball court. Barnes has asked that DPW conduct an on-site inspection to identify measures to mitigate the serious risks this building presents.

She says she is also working with the Guam Preservation Trust to rehabilitate the historic site through a preservation trust grant.
