December 28, 2009
HAGATNA, Guam — Public restrooms in parks around the island of Guam will go uncleaned if the government does not settle its outstanding debt, according to KTGM-TV.
Advanced Management Inc., the company contracted to provide cleaning services in park restrooms on the island, allegedly has not been paid in months and owner Monte Mcdowell can no longer afford to clean the 16 restrooms for free, the story stated.
According to the story, Mcdowell claims he has not been paid since July and that his company is owed $132,000 for services rendered.
The Guam Department of Administration says the only invoices pending in their system total $3,645, the story noted.
Mcdowell, who says if he gets paid in the next couple of days he will continue to honor his contract, notes that Advanced Management Inc. cannot afford to pay its employees without getting paid by the government for the work they''ve performed, the story added.
According to the article, Mcdowell has yet to bill the Guam Department of Parks and Recreation for the month of December, which he claims will add another $30,000 to the outstanding total.
