Adelup comments on Tiyan deal

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Adelup deputy press secretary Phil Leon Guerrero reacts to the criticisms about CoreTech's property stating that leasing Tiyan is what costs a lot of money and that by opting to purchase, GovGuam is in fact choosing the cheaper route.

Leon Guerrero adds that the Tiyan property where Untalan Middle School is currently being housed was appraised in 2011 by Micronesian Appraisal Associates Inc. for $52.3 million. This appraisal doesn't include two new lots and several new buildings that will be constructed as part of the $98 million purchase offer, which is the price for both buildings and land.

Reacting to Al Ysrael's proffered alternative to build a central high, he states that Ysrael has failed to disclose how much the land will cost as well as neglects GovGuam already has liabilities on Tiyan based on current agreements.

Reacting to lawmaker criticisms, Leon Guerrero maintains that this deal has been transparent from the start, with the senators themselves authorizing the deal as they named the lots in public law in the past legislature.
