Guam - Department of Revenue & Taxation employees have been sweating it out for the last month, being forced to deal with air conditioning problems. Rev & Tax Director John Camacho says the system is old and has been undergoing maintenance for the last few weeks.  Employees have been left in the heat utilizing small fans in their work spaces and some have complained of headaches and dizziness from the heat. 

Camacho has received assurances from the landlord that repairs are being made.  Rev & Tax meanwhile is currently looking for new office space as the current lease expires on August 11. "In the future, if we maintain this building we're looking at other options to rectify the problem," Camacho explained. "We're looking at if we get some kind of agreement hat they build another on the side of the building to do another 50-ton air-con to help the system."

Camacho says procurement of a new lease is currently with the General Services Agency.
