Port GM seeks approval to hire 2nd deputy

Guam - Port Authority General Manager Pedro Leon Guerrero has asked the board to approve hiring a second deputy general manager to help oversee operations and the modernization effort. The request was made during today's Port board meeting but a decision was tabled until management provides more details backing up the request. 

16 years ago the Port had two deputy GMs, but now only has one.  Because of the multi-million dollar modernization effort that will begin in the next few months, Leon Guerrero is asking that the position be filled. 

Meanwhile, Port officials participated in a conference call with the Maritime Administration, the Joint Guam Program Office, the U.S. Department of the Interior, the USDA, and the Port Users Group this morning.  Board chairman Dan Tydingco says they anticipate the implementation plan will be approved soon and ground will be broken in the next few months. 

Officials will be providing an in-depth informational briefing on the agency's modernization effort at nine o' clock tomorrow morning at the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
