District Court judge grants GBB's request
by Mindy Aguon
Guam - District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood has approved federal receiver Gershman Brickner & Bratton's request to allow them to establish an additional bank account for Host Community Premium Surcharge fees. By the law, the fees will benefit the villages of Ordot and Inarajan.
The Public Utilities Commission worked with the receiver to establish the fees that took effect back in October. The fees are aimed at assisting Ordot, which was home to the island's dump for decades and is in the process of being turned back over to the community; Inarajan is now home to the island's new landfill.
GBB needs to establish the separate bank account for the HCPS fees as required by the Public Utilities Commission.
