Guam - It's no secret that GovGuam will come up short to the fund the Ordot Dump closure.

But how they'll come up with the cash, as stated by GovGuam's financing plan submitted back in September, is not a viable option.

According to the latest filing by US Department of Justice Attorney Robert Mullaney, the US requests the court reject GovGuam's financing plan with regard to cutting route four safety enhancements and the post-closure care financial assurance.

As we reported earlier this month, southern mayors and island senators voiced their concerns about this stretch of road leading to the Layon Landfill and how important the improvements are for passing motorists.

The USDOJ further states that based on GovGuam's track record, they cannot be trusted to finance the post-closure of the dump.
