Site visits delayed for Ordot & Layon

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood has postponed a site visit to the Layon Landfill and the Ordot Dump. The court had scheduled a visit for today but postponed the visit. She said she would reschedule at a later time. 

The court intended to have the parties go on a tour to see the progress with the consent decree to date.  In recent weeks there's been a push to delay request for proposals for the closure of the Ordot Dump due to concerns that the new estimated cost has not been publicly revealed. 

The judge, however, ordered that Gershman, Brickner & Bratton proceed with an invitation for bid for the construction of the environmental closure of the Ordot Dump and Dero Road sewer improvements.
