Guam - The Port board of directors approved the payment of over $370,000 toMmatson for labor maintenance on the Gantry 3 crane. It was back in September when Matson brought forth a claim for additional charges for the labor cost. The payment would come out of the Port's existing budget in which half a million dollars had already been budgeted for parts and labor.
The motion was approved to pay Matson for the work that had already been performed subject to the availability.
All members voted for the payment with the exception of member Shelly Gibson.
