Bill appropriates $345,000 for road repairs

Guam - Department of Public Works director Carl Dominguez is more than happy to see legislation introduced to help his agency make some much needed repairs to two of our island's secondary streets.  "It's just to repair the worst parts of the road the parts that have bad ruts in them or are sinking you know just to improve the safety of the road," he said.

Bill 249 appropriates $345,000 to go toward the spot repair of Roy T. Damian Street in Mongmong-Toto-Maite while the remaining $30,000 will go toward paving a portion of Mamis Street in Mangilao. Dominguez says he has wanted this funding since July 2012 and the funds are leftover bond money for paving Guam roads, which were saved from the Gill-Baza road project.

Should the measure be passed he says the repairs on the roads would begin about three months after.
