Little league allowed to use Dededo fields

Guam - It seems the baseball fields at the Dededo sports complex will be able to accommodate the upcoming major regional little league tournament this summer. Department of Parks & Recreations acting director Pete Calvo says he has given the league authorization to prepare the fields on their own.

He says his agency lacks the funding to maintain the fields, and provide adequate lighting and restrooms. Calvo is working with his oversight chair, Senator Tina Muna Barnes, on an interim solution to get the fields operational in time for the tournament in July. He said, "I'm giving up the warranty agreement to some extent, and so I've asked little league through the letter that we authorized them to begin working on the field to provide with a work schedule as well as times and dates that they will be working in order for us to monitor the activity on the field."

The senator added, :DPR has given the letter of authorization for utilization to Guam little league and now the authorization for the connecting of the utilities, which is the water and power that has been worked on as of yesterday and hopefully we'll get the utilities hooked up within the next couple of days."

He says he is also having the maintenance contract for the sports complex reviewed at the Governor's Office so Parks & Rec does not lose out on services such as grass cutting.
