Guam - The Agat Marina will
see some much-needed repairs thanks to a $250,000 grant from the Western
Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council. The money will be used to repair
boat slips on two docks.
A hand-off ceremony was held this afternoon as the Port Authority
was identified as the grantee to utilize the funds to make improvements to the
small boat marina, which was built by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1989.
Port general manager Mary Torres says the funding is critically
needed as revenues generated from the Agat Marina fees have historically been
insufficient to support any major improvements.
