Guam - The Guam Waterworks Authority's Engineering Division is moving out of its rent free offices at Public Works and into its new offices in the DNA Building in Hagatna. According to consolidate commission on Utilities chairperson Simon Sanchez, ratepayers will have to fork out over $450,000 over the next three years to lease 6,000 square feet of office space.

Sanchez adds after the three years GWA and GPA's consolidated office building in Mangilao should be done being built. The CCU meanwhile is meeting this evening where the consolidated building's designer will provide an update along with discussions on upgrades to its fire protection system.

Adelup made the decision to move out several line agencies out of the DNA Building and into GovGuam-owned buildings as a cost-saving measure.
