Chief judge decides not to go with GovGuam's plan

Posted: Updated:

GovGuam won't be out of federal receivership at the year's end. In an order out of the District Court, Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood cites GovGuam's history of negligence in maintaining a solid waste system and agrees not to go with GovGuam's financing plan. GovGuam's proposal included cuts to improvements of Dero Road, permanent closure of the Dededo Transfer Station, removal of safety enhancements to Route 4, and the establishment of a separate trust account for the Ordot Dump post-closure.

The judge instead opted to go with Gershman, Brickner & Bratton's financing plan which proposes funding the project through debt service reimbursement.
