Guam - The Abandoned Vehicles Program is going nowhere - at least that's the opinion of most island mayors. Sinajana Vice Mayor Robert Hofmann says they are waiting for the General Services Agency to give official notice that the current contract is expired. Hofmann says there is about $90,000 left to continue the program, but they need the notice from GSA before they can proceed with another contract. This latest delay has left mayors frustrated.
"We've told them our frustrations during the public hearing several weeks ago," he noted. "We let them know how embarrassed and frustrated we are, we even went to the point where we should just cancel the project and give people back their money for their registration so they can pay the solid waste receiver to do it."
Mayors are also waiting for Bill 290 to become law, as the measure would appropriate $475,000 from the Recycling Revolving Fund for cleanup around the island.
