Chief judge orders top GovGuam officials to visit Ordot Dump

Posted: Updated:

The District Court of Guam's chief judge wants to make a site visit to the Ordot Dump, and she's ordered a number of top government officials to go with her. Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood ordered Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio, Speaker Judi Won Pat, Senator Tom Ada, Vice Speaker BJ Cruz, Ordot-Chalan Pago mayor Jessy Gogue, and representatives from the Department of Public Works, the Guam EPA, federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, and the members of the Guam Solid Waste Authority's board of directors to attend the March 31 visit.

She wants to commemorate the final closing of the dump, and inspect ongoing projects.

Also in her order, the chief judge noted that GovGuam's latest reply in the ongoing case over control of the island's solid waste system raised new issues. Her order allows federal attorneys and the receiver until March 1 to respond.  GovGuam has proposed a shorter time-line for the turn-over, and a different finance plan from the court-appointed receiver.

A hearing on the two plans is now set for April 1.
