Guam - Commending the efforts of the federal receiver, the employees of the Solid Waste Management Division and others that contributed to the closing of the Ordot Dump and the opening of the Layon landfill, District court has granted the receiver's request to significantly increase the Fiscal Year 2012 operating budget for the Layon landfill for a total of $21.5 million. The court found the budget to be reasonable and approves the budget that may be modified by the receiver throughout the year.

The court also ordered the Attorney General to respond to concerns outlined by the receiver regarding the Guam Solid Waste Authority Act and the creation of an autonomous, public corporation that will be the successor of the Solid Waste Management Division. The court gave the receiver full power and authority over the GSWA but has ordered the AG to respond to concerns raised by the receiver by October 15.  

As for the Government of Guam's motion for the receiver to pay capital cost expenses from bond proceeds in excess of $4 million, the federal government has been ordered to respond by September 30. The receiver must also file its position by that date.
