GSWA board presents concerns to federal judge

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Guam Solid Waste Authority board is taking their concerns to the court. The board recently voted to send a letter to District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood outlining some of their issues with the federal receiver.  Board chair Andrew Gayle says the board is trying to organize itself and move the process forward but they haven't seen eye to eye with the receiver on several issues.

"We have differences of opinion but we find ourselves in a very unusual situation we're the board of this particular autonomous agency but we don't have any authority over the management of that agency and that's the receiver. So we've expressed our concerns with the judge," he said.

The judge told the board to outline their concerns and submit how they would like things to be addressed.  The issues include the delay in a request for proposal for the board's legal counsel.  Gayle says there has been some disagreement on the requirements required for that RFP.  The court meanwhile is scheduled to hold a status hearing on Wednesday.
