CLTC plans to register all lands

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Chamorro Land Trust Commission has collected close to a million dollars for current and backrent from people occupying government land. In light of the government's financial situation, Department of Land Management director Monte Mafnas says it is time to register all government land and increase an initiative to collect more payments. 

Mafnas admits though it looks like an impossible task, telling KUAM News, "It'll never be completed because as days go by, we find other vendors and other illegal squanders whether they be commercial, agriculture or residential but the word is out that if you're illegally occupying Chamorro Land Trust property then you would have to prove that you are a heir or native Chamorro."

Last week the Commission collected $100,000 from Younex as compensation for allowing the company to utilize a portion of Ypao Point as a staging area. The money will go towards the Commission's operating costs.  Mafnas meanwhile is working to go live with indexing and scanning inputs to help keep track of all delinquent accounts.
