Guam – The Judicary of Guam anticipates saving the government 100-thousand dollars annually with the cost cutting measures scheduled to begin next week.
In light of the looming financial despair facing the Government of Guam, the Judiciary of Guam will be taking the following measures to reduce their financial liabilities.
The intake/filing counters of the Supreme Court Clerk and the Superior Court Clerk, including the Northern Court Satellite and Probation Services Division will close at 4pm Monday through Friday. All Magistrate hearing shall be held at 3pm on any day in which Magistrate Hearings are set.
According to Judiciary Spokesperson Shawn Gumataotao, these measures will be implemented on March 6th. He adds that the savings to be seen from the measures are a result of cutting back overtime pay, compensatory pay and night differential.
