Guam - It will cost the Government of Guam $12 million to close the first two cells of the Layon landfill, as federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton noted that they will be filled to capacity by 2020.  That figure also includes the opening of a new cell for the island's solid waste. 

During a status hearing in the District Court of Guam today, the federal receiver also noted that it will cost the government an additional $21 million to pay for the residential transfer station upgrades, Dero Road improvements and Route 4 safety enhancements that are not part of the consent decree. 

Discussion also focused on land acquisition of ten acres of property near the Ordot Dump that is ongoing.  Questions were raised about whether the Attorney General's Office will continue to pursue that acquisition since they've been removed as the government's attorneys.
