Cyfred has until February to complete negotiations

Guam - Cyfred has been given until February to complete negotiations and finalize an agreement that would allow the Guam Environmental Protection Agency to inspect the Gill-Baza Subdivision and allow residents to get individual sewage systems.  The parties appeared this morning before Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola for a status hearing, but the judge continued the matter to give Cyfred additional time to work on the agreement. 

Residents have been waiting for Cyfred to pay a $580,000 judgment for the installation of a sewer system, but a Supreme Court decision allowed the developer to offset that amount with what residents owe for the lots.

Attorney Curtis Van de Veld stated, "Unfortunately, there is some political jealousy that's going on to prevent Cyfred from being able to complete its task. The original agreement between GWA and Cyfred would have resolved everything if it had been fully performed by GWA, but it never was."

Attorney Wayson Wong, who represents the residents, declined to comment on the case. Another hearing is scheduled for February 2.
