Guam - The Consolidated Commission on Utilities hopes to approve a budget of $300,000 to ensure that local artwork will be featured in the Gloria B. Nelson Public Service Facility in Mangilao.

"We want that building very much like Mrs. Nelson to reflect the culture heritage and the beauty of our community and we want to dedicate about 300 thousand dollars to local artists to put into the building," said CCU chairman Simon Sanchez.

Sanchez says the funding will come from existing bond funding and will not be an additional cost. The new facility which is schedule to be complete before the end of the year will house the Guam Power Authority and the Guam Waterworks management.
