Guam - The paperwork for vendor information is finally complete for the Guam International Night Market in Tiyan according to Sinajana mayor Robert Hoffman the intent is to operate a night market Friday through Sunday from 6 pm to 10 pm, but it has seen some challenges.

"Some of the challenges that we have is vendors on one hand want the tour companies to makes sure the tour bus is there on the other hand we are saying the tour companies will go when the locals go they like to have that mix we just don't want to cater to one segment of the population," he explained.

In addition while there have been vendor interest Hoffman says the Mayors Council does not own the property making it difficult to accommodate vendors who want long term leases. The project is a joint effort between the Mayors Council of Guam and the Department of Parks & Recreation and according to Hoffman they plan to extend the collaboration to agencies such as the Guam Visitors Bureau.
