CMCC meeting canceled this month

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The meeting for the Civil-Military Coordination Council has been postponed indefinitely. There's been no word given on why it will no longer be held this Thursday.

A news release from the Governor's Office states that earlier this month one of the federal resource agencies proposed a fundamental discussion on how the CMCC will apply adaptive program management, which was noted in the Record of Decision. A workshop will also be held next month for Government of Guam agencies that are involved in buildup projects to gain a better understanding on how the APM could be applied.

The CMCC would serve as the interface between the Department of Defense, the governments of Guam and the CNMI as well as the public for all construction-related issues.

In the meantime, Governor Eddie Calvo is waiting for the selection of at least two more members to sit on the Guam First Commission. The first member comes from the Guam Chamber of Commerce with the second member being from a Chamorro rights organization.
