JFK contract could materialize in late-July
Guam - There's still no movement when it comes to awarding a contract for a new JFK High School campus. But according to Department of Public Works Director Andy Leon Guerrero, things may start moving along in the next several weeks. He says the Guam Economic Development Authority is currently finishing up with negotiations with International Bridge Corporation when it comes to numbers.
He says once he's given the all-clear by GEDA, his agency will determine how to proceed in awarding a contract. "If things go well - maybe next week at the latest - hopefully after that during the first or second week of July, we'll probably award and have a contract signed and maybe a groundbreaking will happen thereafter."
The contract has since been held up after numerous appeals and protest made by a couple of companies. DPW is hoping for a new campus to be built by the 2011 school year.
