Guam - Almost a half-million dollars could be lost if it's not spent by Guam Fire and Guam Police. A combined $400,000 from DPW public safety highway bond funds, you may remember, was turned over to both agencies to repair their fleets, although both agencies have been experiencing delays in procurement and supplies, Senator Adolpho Palacios says they haven't officially been reprogrammed.
Senator Palacios was made aware of the problem Friday when he met with members of the Guam Police Department. "GPD said its not yet available and accounts have been set up and they know that and that's why I think the issue is with Adelup," he said.
GPD and GFD have until the 13th to spend the money, if not it will be lost. Senator Palacios has written a letter to Governor Eddie Calvo, seeking his intervention.
