Mayors Council ratifies support for military buildup

Guam - The island's mayors continue to show their support the military buildup and during their meeting today, address concerns that they may have violated the Open Government  Law.

During their meeting Wednesday morning the Mayors Council of Guam ratified their support for HR-4402 and the military buildup.

HR-4402 you may remember was introduced by Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo. The resolution was recently included as an amendment in the house version of the FY15 National Defense Authorization Act.

You may remember the Mayors Council held a closed door meeting last month with the Joint Guam Program Office to discuss the buildup, following that meeting a complaint was filed with the Legislature's Freedom of Information Council. Ahead of final determination from the FOIA Council, the mayors decided to pass another resolution to once again show their support HR-4402 and the buildup.

HR-4402 would declare a surface danger zone at the Ritidian Wildlife National Refuge in anticipation of Northwest Field being selected as the site for a live fire training range complex. The amendment would also require the Navy to pay for the relocation and replacement facility should the wildlife refuge be relocated. During the recent Joint Guam Program Office public meetings on the Draft SEIS over 1,000 people signed a petition against HR-4402.
