Guam - Corrective action may soon take place as the administrative penalty for Joseph Taitano has been received by his Attorney Curtis Van De Veld. It was over seven years ago Taitano received his first notice of violation for operating an illegal dumpsite on his property in Yigo.
At last month's special hearing, the GEPA board unanimously voted to deny Taitano's request to dismiss the case. Van De Veld hopes to meet with Taitano by the end of this week and will then have 15 days to respond to the penalty either with payment or an appeal.
