Guam - The Department of Public Works sent a letter to the Verona Resort and Spa today, outlining a reasonable period of time for its owners to respond to DPW's request for acceptable documents relative to its permitting issues. Deputy director Carl Dominguez tells KUAM News Verona did submit documents earlier this week of drawings of the work they are doing but they were not satisfactory to the department.

He said, "We haven't decided what a reasonable period of time is yet but it won't be very long and seeing how they respond then we will determine what action to take."

He adds following the submission of documents and review, Verona will have to go through a process that will hopefully lead to a proper certificate of occupancy with which the hotel has been operating without one to DPW's liking.
