Taitague, Brown tour Gill-Baza Subdivision

Guam - Governor's Special Assistant Telo Taitague walked through the Gill-Baza Subdivision area on Tuesday with Public Works Director Joanne Brown, hoping to find a solution to the road access problems. Taitague says the estimated cost to construct the road to the troubled Yigo subdivision is pegged at some $800,000, which she says is coming from a DPW bond made available through a public law she authored during her term as senator.

She says the new road would prevent children living in the area from walking a long distance to get to their bus stop. She says Governor Eddie Calvo wants the community to know they are working to have the road done in the next couple of months. "He wanted to ensure that this is going to be built before school and we need to do everything we can possible so she [Joanne] has been given the directive by the governor and for me to oversee to make sure it does happen on time and we1 are very hopeful," noted Taitague.

She says the funds are left over from a DPW bond that they are hoping to keep under the $800,000 limit.
