Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo signed legislation that would repair damages to village streets. Bill 249 reprograms $375,000 to the Department of Public Works for the paving and repair of damages to villages streets as a result of traffic diversion related to ongoing road construction. Mongmong-Toto-Maite mayor Andrew Villagomez says Roy T. Damian Street along Route 33 would be the benefactor of this legislation.

He told KUAM News, "We've had experiences with a lot of problems, also with added problems with GWA's leaks, that multiplies with the bumps that we have also we get accidents here, we have people that lose their tires because of the situation of the roads."

The bill was a bi-partisan effort sponsored by seven senators.
