Response filed in consent decree case

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Assistant U.S. Attorney Rob Mullaney has filed his response to concerns raised by the Guam Solid Waste Authority board in its effort to seek greater autonomy from the federal receiver. The GSWA in February wrote a letter to District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood seeking the ability to hire a general manager, chief financial officer and an attorney. GovGuam also filed its brief with the court supporting GSWA and also cited the need for more transparency and financial accountability from the federal receiver. According to Mullaney's brief the federal government objects to GSWA's proposals because they feel the board has failed to demonstrate either the technical expertise in solid waste operations or the required familiarity with GSWA's finances. Instead they request the federal receiver retains its control and authority over GSWA's day to day operations and consent decree projects.
