Vandalism in Tumon a growing problem
by Krystal Paco
Guam - The island's tourist capitol is working to combat vandalism. According to Tamuning mayor Louise Rivera, it's a growing problem in her village evident by graffiti and stickers on street signs, utility boxes, and power poles. "It is an eyesore," she said. "Not only is it an eyesore we're also seeing individuals out there testing the system to see if they're going to get caught - they'll do it right on Marine Corps Drive right where there's a lot of people traveling but because its dark they'll tag up the place."
Rivera is also working with the Guam Power Authority to turn on streetlights that have been out to deter vandals. The Guam Visitors Bureau has agreed to donate paint and supplies for the project.
