Guam - Several initiatives continue as the Port Authority moves closer to a groundbreaking on the first of several projects under its modernization effort.  Today port board members were presented with the assessment of the bid submissions for the agency's security enhancement and its marina water line project.

"And they're all in connection with all of the modernization plan and also for the benefit of the community particularly at the Agana and Agat Marinas to make sure recreational users are addressed as far as their needs," said board chairman Dan Tydingco. He says the projects are ready for rollout following a formal ratification from the board and the green light from the PUC.

The board meanwhile raised concerns over whether they will be able to hold public outreach meetings on its proposed crane surcharge in time to meet end of the year deadlines.
