Court OKs increase for commercial haulers

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Hoping to encourage commercial haulers to pay their bills on time, the federal receiver has been authorized to give a 10% discount to those that pay their bill on time and in full. In an order issued today, District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood approved the incentive and also approved a 10% increase of commercial rates to be implemented by Gershman, Brickner & Bratton officials. 

During last week's status hearing, the receiver expressed concerns that some haulers are not paying their bills because of a 1999 law that doesn't require them to pay if their customers are delinquent. GBB is trying to work with lawmakers to repeal that law.

The judge also ordered the attorney general to expedite the final processing of the contract with Brown and Caldwell for the closure of the Ordot Dump.
