Taxpayers seek order to stop Layon work

Guam - A group of taxpayers have asked Superior Court Pro-Tem Judge Perry Inos to order the government to immediately stop work at the new Layon landfill and require the Government of Guam to pay back every single cent that was used to construct the new landfill. A taxpayer lawsuit was filed back in 2004 by former Ordot mayor Rosanna San Miguel and others who believe the government was violating the law that required a landfill be built only at Guatali or Malaa.

Their attorney, Delia Lujan, argues that Public Law 24-06 is valid and any expenditures for a landfill at Dandan are illegal. The government, however, contends that the taxpayers have not shown any evidence that the law has been violated. Judge Inos also expressed concerns about whether he had the authority to provide the relief that's been requested since the District Court has already appointed a receiver and authorized expenses for the construction of the new landfill that is scheduled to open on September 1.

Judge Inos denied the plaintiff's motion to amend their complaint and took their motion for summary judgment under advisement.
