GFD, GPD, DPW repairing fleets

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Public Works, Guam Police and Guam Fire appeared before Senator Tom Ada's committee this afternoon providing an update on repairs to school buses, police cars and motorcycles, and GFD medics and fire trucks. It was part of hearing on Bill 142, which gives these agencies additional time to expend funds appropriated to their agencies from a public law enacted last year. 

The deadline to use that money was April 13. If Bill 142 is signed into law it would extend the deadline by another 120 days. To date, DPW has repaired 24 buses, increasing the total fleet from 90 to 114, conducted preventative maintenance service on all 114 buses, and began the process to replace 20 school bus engines. GPD has contracted the repair of 13 police vehicles, and have begun surveying the repairs needed for several GPD motorcycles. 

GFD has purchased $69,000 worth of needed repair parts, and is working towards repairing service vehicles and ambulances.
