Bizman: Baciwa owes
me P207M in land rent


A Bacolod businessman, who is claiming ownership of a property in Sitio Balogo, Concepcion Village, Talisay City, is asking the Bacolod City Water District for payment for the use of the water source in his property.

Erle Gonzales yesterday said BACIWA owes him P207 million in unpaid or back rentals from 1973 to date. He claimed that the water utility has no water rights under Presidential Decree 198 to allow it to draw water from the Boro-Boro spring found inside his property in Talisay.

The legal title of the spring source is Balogo Spring which was granted Water Permit no. 022401 by the National Water Resources Board to the private owner to use or extract water from it, he said. He wants to rehabilitate the Balogo Spring and implement the water permit issued him, he added. moremoremore
