Guam - A 16-year-old debt for the Chamorro Village project may finally be paid off if legislation introduced by Senator Rory Respicio becomes law. Bill 260 would authorize the Department of Public Works to pay the more than $130,000 debt for the Guam Public Market Redevelopment Project.

Chamorro Affairs President Joseph Cameron says he spoke with DPW Director Joanne Brown about the measure, saying, "I think its all about management and management of funds and the communication between directors, I believe a more effective communication between directors will resolve a lot of these issues that deal with prior debt obligations."

On a side note, Chamorro Affairs is planning on upgrading the village by improving the sidewalks and use federal stimulus funding to install energy-efficient lighting.
