Community asked to help GovGuam by building bus shelters

Guam - Across the island children wait to catch the bus - some without a shelter. These areas have been designated as pickup areas and according to Public Works director Carl Dominguez the issue is funding. Two years ago the island lacked 100 bus shelters and because of this $100,000 was appropriated which allowed DPW to erect 65 shelters. 55 were built by DPW and 10 were built by the Guam Trades Academy.

Dominguez says that the community can lend a hand and volunteer to build a bus shelter at one of the designated pickup areas. If an organization or even a parent would like to do this they must first go through Public Works, once the okay is given he recommends that if the temporary structure is to be made of tin and wood that the DPW bus shelter design be followed.

Another option available is to donate the supplies needed for the shelter to Public Works.
