Guam - Several new developments are in store for the Consolidated Commission on Utilities as the board moved to approve positions, office space and software. CCU chairman Simon Sanchez says the board approved four new positions for the Guam Waterworks Authority relating to its water meter structure.

Sanchez said, "So we created four positions last night to allow existing employees to compete for these classified positions, but move into a more structured job classification where they see upward mobility. We want to encourage employees to improve their skills and stay with the authority longer and move up from one position to another position."  

The positions include one water meter reader leader and three other water meter positions and were modeled after GPA's structure.

Meanwhile, the board also approved GWA to rent office space in the DNA Building for its growing engineering and finance and accounting division under a three-year lease for $470,000. Additionally, in order to provide better customer service along with bringing renewable energy online, GWA approved a $3.5 million customer software implementation service as recommended by its management audit team.
