Guam - Joseph Taitano may finally have to pay his dues for running an illegal dumpsite on his property in Yigo. According to Guam Environmental Protection Agency public information officer Tammy Jo Anderson Taft, the administrative penalty is expected to be out soon.

"Well, they're working on the letter and because this is a legal process we want to make sure all the T's are crossed and all the I's are dotted correctly. We can't release anything that's in the letter because we want to make sure that Mr. Taitano reads the letter first, because it does deal with him and his case. When the letter does come out, we're going to make sure he reads it and receives it first, and is able to talk to his legal counsel and then we'll release more details that are in the letter," she said.

The notice could be out by next week. From there, Taitano then has 15 days to respond to the penalty either with payment or appeal.
